Drumroll, please! The 2021 South Florida Fair theme is….

The 2021 South Florida Fair theme has been announced and it’s out of this world!

“Our Earth Matters” is the theme for the South Florida Fair. It will be held Jan. 15 – 31, 2021 at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach.

“Every year we look to implement new changes to ‘green’ our fair and facility,” said South Florida Fair President & CEO Vicki Chouris, in a press release.

Last year, the fair recycled cardboard, asked the vendors to eliminate plastic, including straws and other service items, and worked with Tellus Products in Belle Glade, which converts leftover sugarcane fiber into disposable tableware, such as containers, plates and bowls.”

“We are looking forward to working with various organizations to bring more awareness to our planet and its environmental concerns, starting with Earth Day,” said Chouris.

The fair is teaming up with 25 Palm Beach County nonprofit, educational and governmental agencies that are part of RISE — Resources In Science Education — for a virtual celebration. Each organization is presenting at least one Earth Day activity as well as a list of resources, including virtual tours. The fair is offering instructions on how to make a living seed necklace, an activity that will teach participants about germination.
