The Big Fresno Fair announced that it will pivot from a traditional fair experience to a series of drive-thru and virtual experiences.
Officials said that due to COVID-19, it has forced the fair to reevaluate how it runs the fair.
“Our goal has always been to bring an aspect of this beloved tradition to our community in a healthy and safe manner as guided by our health officials,” said Lauri King, Deputy Manager II, The Big Fresno Fair.
Plans for the fair are still in development, but there will be an expansion of the “Fair Food Feature” events that were held earlier in the year.
As part of the virtual features, there will be a Jr. Livestock Auction, but others were not released as of Tuesday.
“While this year’s Fair experience will be nothing like year’s past, it will still be a fun, worthwhile experience that we hope will bring smiles to the faces of our community – all while continuing to work together to keep everyone safe,” said King
Earlier this month, organizers canceled the Table Mountain Concert Series and refunded tickets.
The fair said it will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will consult with local and state health officials and the CDC on plans for the fair in 2021.
