The safety of the Jacksonville Fair’s visitors, participants and community is the highest priority in producing the annual fair. After much discussion and debate with the Fair board and stakeholders, it became clear that cancellation was the prudent choice for the fair to do its part to improve community health and safety, and reduce the cycle of infection. The Jacksonville Fair will return bigger and better than ever November 4 - 14, 2021.
The impact of the fair’s cancellation will be felt far beyond the loss of our annual celebration, we are heartbroken for the small businesses, seasonal workers, competitors, exhibitors, vendors and community outreach groups who rely on the income and exposure the Jacksonville Fair brings them.We look forward to when we can gather again to celebrate all that is exceptional about Jacksonville and Northeast Florida. Until then, stay safe, be well and support each other. We’ll miss you.
