COVID-19 Safety


It is our mission to keep guests and staff safe while also continuing to make your visit a memorable experience.



COVID-19 exposure is an inherent risk in any public locations where people are present. Guests should only attend after evaluating their own health risks. Entry on to the fairgrounds constitutes the understanding of these risks and willingness to undertake the risk of exposure. No refunds will be given following entry on to the fairgrounds. We encourage each guest to take responsibility for their own health and safety – in addition to acting with care for the health and safety of those around them.
