Another sign things are slowly getting back to normal - the Boonville-Oneida County Fair will return for 2021 and the country acts scheduled in 2020 are back too.

The 2020 Boonville-Oneida County Fair, which was scheduled for July 28 through August 2 was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. It's only the second time since the fair began in 1888 it wasn't open. The other time was in 1943 during World War II.

132nd Boonville-Oneida County Fair will be held July 27 through August 1, 2021 and tickets will go on sale soon. Not only will the fair return this summer, so will the country acts booked for the 2020 fair.

Jo Dee Messina and Mark Wills will perform July 31.

All the fair favorites will be back too, including 4H shows, the kiddie tractor pull, horse pull, midway rides and games as well as the demolition derby.

If the Boonville-Oneida County Fair is back for 2021, does that mean the Great New York State Fair will return to Syracuse too? Only time will tell.
