Attention:

Due to The Corvid 19 Pandemic The Board of Directors of the Pelican Lake Agricultural Society after much discussion and deliberation have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Pelican Lake Ag.

With postponing the Fair, we would request that if you have a 2020 Fair Book please keep it till next year as we are planing on using it as all divisions and classes will remain the same, the only changes will be the dates. Please check Facebook and our Website for any updates.
