CITY OF OWENSBORO RESCHEDULES
2020 OWENSBORO HYDROFAIR
PRESENTED BY JAGOE HOMES
The City of Owensboro, in consultation with the Department of Public Health and American Hydroplane Events, announces it will reschedule the 2020 Owensboro HydroFair presented by Jagoe Homes, due to the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event was originally scheduled for August 15-16, 2020 on the downtown Owensboro riverfront. With guidance from the local health department and state officials, the City of Owensboro and American Hydroplane Events will continue to assess the situation with plans to reschedule the racing weekend to September 12-13, 2020.
“This is a decision that was not made lightly, but the safety and health of the race teams, volunteers, and spectators is always our main goal. At this time, with the rising number of COVID-19 cases around the country as well as here in Kentucky, we cannot continue with the event on its originally scheduled weekend,” said Tim Ross, Director of Public Events for the City of Owensboro. “We are hopeful we can safely bring this event to the riverfront in September.”
