TULARE – Tulare County residents will have the opportunity to receive a free ticket to the upcoming Tlare County Fair while also helping those in need by donating goods.

This event will only be held once and there is no limit to the amount of tickets that can be given away, as long as the requirements are met. The Tulare County Fair is partnering with Bethel Church of Tulare, Lighthouse Rescue Mission, Tulare Emergency Aid and the Salvation Army of Tulare and Visalia for food outreach. 

The Tulare County Fair’s “Jam-Packed Fun” begins Wednesday, Sept. 14, with the recognition of veterans at the presentation of the Quilts of Honor ceremony. Nomination forms must be postmarked, or hand delivered, by Friday, Aug. 19.
