Traditional “full-fledged” South Florida Fair scheduled for May 7-23, 2021

2021 is already looking up! Instead of just having one South Florida Fair, we’re getting two!

Fair organizers decided to scale back on the usual festivities in January due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The “mini” Fair is outdoors at the South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Boulevard, from January 15, 2021 to January 31, 2021.

Now, organizers have announced that the South Florida Fair will hold a traditional fair May 7-23, 2021. The full-fledged show will be held in addition to the “mini” fair in January.

If you purchase a ticket for the “mini” fair, you will get a free Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday admission ticket 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.

For the January fair, safety measures will be enforced and include 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.
