Organizers with the 2020 California Mid-State Fair announced Tuesday the postponement of multiple fair competitions.

The 2020 Central Coast Wine Competition, 2020 Central Coast Vinegar Competition and 2020 California Craft Spirits Competition have been postponed to a later date in the summer.

Organizers say these postponements are due to the current COVID-19 guidelines provided by San Luis Obispo County health officials.

Wineries and businesses registered for these competitions have been contacted. Registration for the previous competitions mentioned will remain open until the new deadline Friday, July 3.

In addition, the 2020 Home Winemaking Competition has been postponed. However, that registration deadline has past and those registered have been contacted.

Organizers have not announced an exact postponement date. The 75th California Mid-State Fair is expected to run July 22- August 2. However, board members with the fair are expected to make a decision on Thursday whether or not the fair needs to be canceled due to state guidelines and COVID-19 concerns.
