Will There Be a Haydays 2020?

Ive been asked many times recently if the popular "Official Start to Winter" event, Haydays, will happen this year in North Branch, MN.
Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan State Publications.
I'm one of several people who work on creating the Haydays Annual Program you see in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan state snowmobile magazines through MSPN Inc.
Here is a note we received from the Sno Barons the day Minnesota announced it would be cancelling its State Fair.
I truly hope Haydays isn't cancelled, and if it does, I have been asking myself how this will affect buying patterns for the thousands who attend - Will more people buy online? Will dealership visits increase? What about the used market? Will Facebook Marketplace be flooded with more used snowmobile product typically found in the Haydays swap?


Will Haydays 2020 Happen?


"The Sno Barons Snowmobile Club have been working diligently to produce the 54th Hay Days.  In light of a decision today to cancel the Minnesota State Fair (scheduled in September for the week before Hay Days) the Sno Barons are revisiting all factors related to holding the event in cooperation with local and state officials.  A decision as to whether the 54th Hay Days can be held as planned will be communicated on June 11th.

Note the deadline for Vendor payment has been extended until June 30th.  

If any additional information becomes available before June 11th, I will be in touch.

Considering Mn is a “blue” state, your fun police governor will probably shut it down. This is one event I look forward to and have gone nearly 30yrs in a row. Cross your fingers that it doesn’t get cancelled

If Haydays cancels, this could potentially make Princeton a true Outlaws event!

Our family loves this event! Would be a bummer to miss it. BTW we live in MI and see your name Kale in MISORVA news. Nice job to you and all parties who helped turn that magazine around.

I hope they don't cancel Haydays. Best event and time of the year.

I suspect any state funded or local government funded event to cancel just because they can. It’s an easy way to save money in any budget and because of covid19 it’s “acceptable” to most. Hoping that revenue generating events like haydays is not effected. In my opinion it’s ridiculous to even think of canceling.

Open the gates and they will come.
Leave grandpa at home and show respect to the person closest to you.
You have a greater chance of dying in a car wreck getting to Hay Days than catching the virus.

Princeton grass drags is cancelled which is really disappointing so I’d guess Haydays will announce the same on the 11th. Surprising how in a couple days time you don’t even hear about covid on news and media turns attention to Mpls Riots. Princeton would stand a better chance of having the swap looted and hayfield caught on fire before anyone caught covid.

Fingers crossed. Haydays is such an awesome event. This season I would be introducing a bunch of newbies. Many of which need decent gear. Be a real bummer to miss it.
