C O V I D – 1 9

We are committed to taking extra precautions to keep our community and staff safe while maintaining fair operations. This year, we are increasing security staff, are implementing strict COVID-19 sanitization protocol, offering easy access to sanitization stations, and hiring additional cleaning staff to implement increased sanitization and cleaning efforts.

Safety Precautions
Here are recommended safety precautions set forth by the CDC:

  • Been sick or exposed? Please stay home when sick.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60%. alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Follow proper coughing etiquette.
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • If you have a compromised immune system, please check with your health care provider to determine your own risks before attending events or traveling.

Indoor/Outdoor Crowds
The CDC recommends the avoidance of indoor spaces that do not offer fresh air from the outdoors as much as possible.  The Canyon County Fair is an outdoor event—including concerts—and at this time, all fair admission and concert seat tickets are on sale.  

The CDC indoor recommendation reads, “If indoors, bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors, if possible.”  The livestock shows take place in an outdoor barn, with rollup doors offering open airflow, which will remain open throughout the duration of fair.  O’Connor Field House will host indoor vendor space and exhibits; per CDC guidelines rollup doors and man doors will be propped open to offer proper airflow.

All safety precautions will be followed per CDC guidelines in July 2021.  Ticket purchasers will receive information through the email address provided when purchasing tickets through Etix.

There are currently no vaccine requirements for concerts or events.  Precautions will be followed per CDC guidelines in July 2021.  Ticket purchasers will receive information through the email address provided when purchasing tickets through Etix.

If fair or the concert series is postponed or rescheduled, you will receive ticketing instructions through the email address provided at purchase.  If there are any cancellations, you will receive a refund automatically through E-tix the official ticket vendor of the Canyon County Fair.  If you purchased your tickets through a third party, you will need to contact them directly about their refund policies and procedures.
