Free masks will be provided at each gate. Hand sanitizers and handwashing stations will be available throughout the fairgrounds for an additional level of protection.

“Most of our activities are outside and therefore well ventilated,” noted Dena Rizzardo, CEO of the fair. “And overall, we are doing our part to provide a safe family environment. We recommend that families do a health check at home to be sure they are healthy prior to coming to the fair. If you aren’t feeling well, please stay home.”
