All state and local COVID protocols will be enforced.

Many say this is the moments they have been waiting for. 

As they usually go to the fair every year, except last year due to COVID-19.

"I'm excited to have the children back here,” said  Livestock Superintendent JoAnn Arnold Switzer. “It's been hard on them and hard on us not to have it back and so we're all very excited and can't thank the directors and permanent staff for all they've done to make this happen because they've had to go through a lot of hoops."

Concerts will also take place here, including Blue Oyster Colt on a free stage.

The Bret Michaels concert was canceled Wednesday night due to COVID-19.
