Note: The following message is from Mayor Jeremy Stutsman and Police Chief Jose’ Miller:

I was made aware of a social media post claiming the Department of Homeland Security would be present at the Elkhart County Fair and that 200 people were detained at the St. Joseph County Fair. Chief Jose’ Miller and I have reached out to St. Joseph County officials, Sheriff Rogers, the Goshen Police Department and the Goshen News, and can find no evidence of any of this being true.

Additionally, La Casa de Amistad in St. Joseph County has also dispelled rumors of people being detained at the St. Joe fair.

We look forward to celebrating our fair with everyone.
