FILE – This undated electron microscope image made available by the U.S. National Institutes of Health in February 2020 shows the Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Also known as 2019-nCoV, the virus causes COVID-19. The sample was isolated from a patient in the U.S. On Tuesday, April 21, 2020, U.S. health regulators OK’d the first coronavirus test that allows people to collect their own sample at home, a new approach that could help expand testing options in most states. The sample will still have to be shipped for processing back to LabCorp, which operates diagnostic labs throughout the U.S. (NIAID-RML via AP)

TRIGG COUNTY, KY (WKRN) – The Trigg County Country Ham Festival scheduled for October 9-10, 2020 is cancelled, according to event organizers.

The decision comes after consultations with Frankfort, the Health Department and other safety officials.

We know this is a huge disappointment not only to our sponsors, vendors and participants, but especially to our community! We want to thank our community for your patience and understanding as we make this difficult decision. To help celebrate the Ham Festival we will still be selling 2020 Ham Festival TShirts and Ham Festival Bicentennial Pins. Mark your Calendars for October 8-9, 2021. We will come back stronger and better!
