Tulare County Fair looks forward to new beginning

Entries are open for the Tulare County Fair that will begin this fall on Sept. 15

TULARE – After putting the fair on wheels in 2020 to accommodate pandemic guidelines, the Tulare County Fair is back and in person this fall.

Two weeks ago the fair announced their entries are now open for livestock and still exhibits. Still exhibits are free to enter.

“It’s a new beginning at the Tulare County Fair,” fair CEO Dena Rizzardo said, “and we are excited to be planning a fair that offers new attractions while acknowledging the elements of the fair that everyone has come to expect and appreciate.”

On Wednesday, Sept. 15, the Tulare County Fair will open its gates for the first time since 2019. At 12:30 p.m. the Quilts of Honor ceremony will take place on the community stage and locally made quilts will be presented to honor veterans who have served our nation.

To submit a nomination, visit www.tcfair.org; applications are on line. The completed form must be returned to the fair office, 620 S. K St., or emailed to [email protected] by Friday, Aug. 31. The nominees may be from any branch of the military.

Concerts will be back also, Rizzardo noted, including the Nashville Stars Live, featuring tributes to Carrie Underwood, Eric Church and Thomas Rhett; Journey Revisited; Earth to Mars, a tribute to Bruno Mars; Atomic Punks, a tribute to Van Halen; and a Karla Perez tribute to Selena.
