2020 Oklahoma Youth Expo Ends Early Due to State of Emergency Declared by the City of Oklahoma City

2020 Oklahoma Youth Expo Ends Early Due to State of Emergency Declared by the City of Oklahoma City Here is an official statement from the Oklahoma Youth Expo as of 7:25 pm regarding the cancellation of the remainder of the 2020 event:

"Since the start of the 2020 Oklahoma Youth Expo, balancing the continuation of our event while prioritizing the health and safety of our exhibitors and their families has been our top concern. Late this afternoon, a State of Emergency was announced in Oklahoma City by Oklahoma City Mayor, David Holt.

"As part of the state of emergency, the city is restricting public gatherings with 50 or more participants at city-operated facilities and city-owned facilities operated by a private contractor. As a result, we are having to cancel the remainder of the 2020 Oklahoma Youth Expo as of Sunday evening, March 15, 2020.

"The Oklahoma Youth Expo has been the centerpiece for Oklahoma agriculture for 105 years. Having to close our doors early is extremely difficult for all exhibitors and their families along with our staff.

"We look forward to the 2021 Oklahoma Youth Expo where The World’s Largest Junior Livestock Show will continue to inspire and encourage the development of key skills like leadership, a strong work ethic and problem solving, which helps 4-H and FFA members reach goals far beyond the showring.

"Additional updates and information will be provided as it becomes available."

The decision was made to allow the Commercial Ewes to show Sunday evening following the Purebred Breeding Ewes.. Earlier in the evening, the Purebred and Purebred Influence Heifer show was completed. No Market animals were able to be shown. The Night of Stars Gilt Sale set for Tuesday evening will continue as an "on-line" only event but will be held.
