It’s Dyno-Mite! The South Florida Fair is back with a Jurassic theme now thru Jan. 29

WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (SOUTH FLORIDA WEEKEND) - The South Florida Fair is back in action now thru January 29, 2023! The food, the games, the performances...there are plenty of reasons for you to check out this year’s South Florida Fair.

“Our exposition center is filled with dinosaurs,” said Vicki Chouris, President & CEO of the South Florida Fair. “We have animatronics, they move, they make sounds, the kids are absolutely going to love what they’re going to see when they come to the fair this year.”

The theme this year is all about dinosaurs. With interactive activities and exhibits relating to the Jurassic era — you’ll be transported back in time!

“What’s really great for us this year is Florida Nursery Growers have put together a display of plants that were indigenous to where the dinosaurs actually were,” said Chourise. “So those plants that are on display with the animals are what the animals would have lived amongst when the animals were roaming the earth so it’s really an educational exhibit.”

Parents - here’s some important information for you. The same rule put in place for the 2022 Fair is back this year. On Friday and Saturday Nights after 8 p.m., anyone under the age of 17 has to be accompanied by an adult.

“We’re not allowing children to come in unescorted, unsupervised during those evenings because of the size of the crowds that are here,” said Chouris. “We just want everyone to feel safe and enjoy themselves so we put in that restriction this year. They will have to purchase their admission and their ride wristbands at the entrance before they come in.”

Fair officials say last year’s attendance was around 300,000 people and they expect to break that number this year! If you’re new to the area or maybe you’ve just never made it over to the fairgrounds…don’t miss out!

“There is something for everyone, it doesn’t matter what your age is,” she said. “If you’re a little kid and you love dinosaurs or you’re a big kid and you love dinosaurs, or if you’re just somebody who enjoys theater shows, we have performances, we have the ice skating shows, so we have a variety of entertainment for all likes.”
