After delaying the Owensboro HydroFair by a month, organizers announced the cancellation of the event on September 11 - 13.  

The event originally set for August 15 and 16 brings race teams and spectators from all of North America, featuring sanctioned Hydro Plane races on the Ohio River.

Owensboro Director of Public Events Tim Ross says, with guidance from the local health department, the decision to cancel the event was in an effort to protect the health and safety of spectators, volunteers, and race teams.

Next year's Owensboro HydroFair is now scheduled for August, 20, 21, and 22 of 2021.
