South Florida Fair to present two fairs in 2021
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Organizers of the South Florida Fair are taking the unprecedented
step of presenting two fairs in one year with the announcement of a full-fledged, traditional fair now scheduled for May 7-23. This is in addition to the South Florida Mini Fair, which took place January 15-31.
To top it off, everyone who bought a ticket online from the South Florida Fair’s website for the mini fair will be granted one free Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday admission to the fair in May.
“We have proven the ability to make adjustments as needed,” said Vicki Chouris, the fair’s president & CEO. “In the name of safety, most people realize why we decided to scale back our traditional fair but we also know they were disappointed. Now they can get two different types of fairs for the price of one, all in the same year.”
The South Florida Fair in May will feature its original theme of “An Earthly A-Fair,” both indoor and outdoor attractions, some 200 rides and games, and all of the other fair favorites. The South Florida Mini Fair was held outdoors and included the typical fair foods and beverages, a variety of local and tribute bands performing daily, shopping opportunities with vendors under a large tent, racing pigs, a giant sand sculpture, strolling entertainers, farm animals, kiddie rides and visiting the historic buildings of Yesteryear Village.
For the January fair, safety measures were enforced and included mandatory mask wearing by everyone, safety protocols for all vendors, and a revamped site layout to accommodate more distancing. In May, fair officials will follow the CDC guidelines that are being recommended at that time.
