After Canceling in 2020, Okeechobee County Fair comes roaring back in 2021

After Canceling in 2020, Okeechobee County Fair comes roaring back in 2021

  The 2021 Okeechobee County Fair Board aimed to bring “Buckets of Fun in 2021” to their community. Linda Syfrett, President and founder of the fair, feels that their mission was accomplished. “It was a sad time cancelling our fair last year, we had to make the decision just one day before we were supposed to open,” says Syfrett. After creating a solid Covid-19 mitigation strategy, Syfrett, and the rest of her all-volunteer board members, were ready to provide an opportunity for family fun after a year of uncertainty. When it came time to begin planning, Syfrett and her board felt they had a good Covid mitigation strategy ready for approval which they submitted to the administrator of the fairgrounds and to the city of Okeechobee. “We provided extra hand washing and hand sanitizing stations, arranged for ...   [read more]

Southwest Florida & Lee County Fair: First Pandemic Era Fair to Break Attendance Records

Southwest Florida & Lee County Fair: First Pandemic Era Fair to Break Attendance Records

  While not without some hesitancy and an erring on the side of overly cautious planning, fairs are returning and the fair industry seems to be steadily reopening, one fair at a time. One of the most recent examples – the Southwest Florida & Lee County Fair – actually accomplished an unexpected achievement – increased attendance and record setting days.In a world where social distancing and other restrictions remain in place and the common wisdom is to expect lower attendance compared to pre-pandemic events, the 2021 SFLCF stands out for disproving the accepted wisdom. A Feb/Mar fair, the SFLCF was one of the last full fairs held before the coronavirus lockdown went into effect, making this particular year-to-year comparison noteworthy.True, as a statistic, the uptick may have been only marginally significant – ...   [read more]

  The International Independent Showmen's Association (IISA) announced today the dates for the 2022 Gibtown Trade Show and Extravaganza will be February 15-18, 2022.The dates are one week later than normal due to the NFL adding a 17th game to the season and the Super Bowl being pushed back by a week.  The IISA typically kicks off its trade show week with a Super Bowl party on the Sunday leading into trade show week.  If the Florida State Fair holds to its traditional dates and ends on President's Day 2022, the trade show will now be the second week of the fair and the fair will be open all days of the trade show.  This may give fair vendors and concessionaires some time to visit the show during the day when they are not engaged in set up for the fair.It is expected that all other events that run in conjunction with the trade show in Gibtown will also adjust their dates in 2022.   [read more]
