JaxFair Rules & Regulations


Welcome to the Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair (the “Fair”). To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all our Guests, please respect the following rules:

  • All persons, bags, parcels, clothing and other items may be subject to screening/security checks at Fair entrances and also within the Fair.
  • We reserve the right not to allow any bag, parcel or other item to be brought into the Fair, and to deal with any unattended object in such way as we consider appropriate.
  • Please show common courtesy to fellow Guests and Fair staff by not using profanity or engaging in unsafe, illegal, disruptive or offensive behavior. For your safety and the safety of others, please refrain from running.
  • Proper attire, including shoes and shirts, must be worn at all times. Costumes may not be worn by Guests ages 10 or older. Clothing that drags on the ground is prohibited. Clothing with multiple layers is subject to search. We reserve the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that we consider inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests.
  • Please supervise your children at all times.
  • Access to attractions depends upon the safety rules for each attraction.

Tickets and other entitlements are non-transferable, non-exchangeable, non-refundable, revocable and void if altered. The ticket must be used by the same person during its period of validity and is not valid for special events that require a separate admission charge.
