JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Last month, the Jacksonville Fair was canceled to keep people safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, in light of that cancellation, the Greater Jacksonville Fair has decided to hold a Food Festival instead.
The Fair Food test will be scheduled for Nov. 14 and 15 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds. The festival would feature classic fair food and live local musicians. There will also be several 4-H highlights and activities scheduled in the Livestock Arena.
The CEO and President of the Greater Jacksonville Fair, Bill Olson, said that he wanted people to still experience their favorite part of the fair with local food and entertainment.
"The Fair Food Festival gives attendees a chance to have all their favorite Fair foods, listen to great music and applaud our youth, while practicing safe social distancing " Olson said.
Masks will be encouraged and there will be over 100 tables spaced out for people to sit.
Passes for an entire vehicle will be $10. Passes can be bought here.
