The deadline to order a table for 2020 has passed. Contributions made after June 1, 2020 will be produced for the 2021 State Fair.
Questions and answers about the cancellation of the 2020 State Fair and our brick, bench and table program:
Is my table still being produced?
Yes – We are working with our producers to have these delivered to the fairgrounds for this year.
Will I get to see my new table this year?
We will do all we can to make this possible! While we’re not sure exactly what it will look like yet, we are planning for a way for you to be able to see your table on the fairgrounds this year. If we are unable to have an in-person gathering, we are also working on a way to virtually show each person their table through that means.
Does the 5-year warranty include 2020?
We will extend the 5-year warranty an additional year for all bricks, benches and tables delivered in 2020.
Can I still order a brick, bench or table right now?
The deadline for benches and tables to be ordered this year has passed (June 1), but you can still order a brick before July 1. For contributions received after these dates, these items will be made in 2021.
