On behalf of everyone at the Greater Jacksonville Fair Association, our hearts
go out to all those impacted by COVID-19. As an industry that champions and
facilitates safety, the Jacksonville Fairgrounds is taking the necessary pre-
cautions to ensure that we keep our customers, volunteers and staff safe.
Due to the rapidly changing risks to the community, it has been decided to
postpone or cancel all of the upcoming events scheduled at the Expo Center at
the Fairgrounds. To do our part in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus,
Collective Con scheduled for this weekend has been rescheduled for July 17- 19,
Greenscape Tree Giveaway is re-scheduled for October 24th and all parking on
the fairgrounds for activities in the area will be cancelled until further notice.
Please refer to our website, jacksonvillefair.com and social media for the latest
updates as we actively reschedule events for the next few months.
There is no question this is a time of great uncertainty and we thank you for your
ongoing support as we all navigate the “new normal.” Stay safe and healthy.
