WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — South Florida Fair organizers announced Monday they will be presenting two fairs in 2021.
A full-fledged, traditional fair is scheduled for May 7 through 23. The previously announced South Florida Mini Fair will take place from January 15 to 31.
Both fairs will happen at the fairgrounds located at 9067 Southern Blvd. in West Palm Beach.
According to organizers, everyone who buys 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 upcoming South Florida Mini Fair will be held outdoors and include 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.
Advance tickets are being sold exclusively via the fair’s website.
Guests with an advance ticket will show their barcode on their phone or present a printed copy of their purchase at the gate. Tickets at the gate will be $10, good Monday through Friday, and $15 on Saturday and Sunday (a $5 savings compared to last year).
On opening day, Friday, Jan. 15, guests will be admitted free during the first hour from noon to 1 p.m. After opening day, weekday hours will be from 4 to10 p.m., and on Saturday, Sunday, and Martin Luther King Day, hours will be from 10 a.m. to10 p.m., except for the final Sunday, which will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
