Fair CEO Dena Rizzardo calls the 2021 Tulare County Fair a success, thanks volunteers and leadership supporters
TULARE – The Tulare County Fair was a hit in 2021, and just the kind of shot in the arm the community needed.
After a less than traditional fair experience in 2020 the Tulare County Fair CEO Dena Rizzardo called this year a success, and was happy to see families stream through the gates for five days in September.
“We are so grateful for the attendees, the entertainers and the exhibitors who participated and helped make the 2021 fair a huge success,” Rizzardo said. “And our youth benefited from a very successful livestock auction. We are grateful to all who helped launch this successful community gathering.”
The Junior Fair Board was active again this year, she noted, providing extra help throughout the run of the fair while also learning about leadership. The annual Quilts of Honor event was another success, with quilts presented to veterans as a way to honor their service.
The fair featured new attractions and new rides, and a variety of musical entertainment.
“Our goal was to deliver a fair that offered something for everyone, while being very aware of the need to keep the fairgrounds clean and safe. I’m pleased to say that we delivered that,” Rizzardo said.
