COVID-19 Protocols at the Fair
The Lane County Fair's main focus is to create a safe and fun event for everyone who attends. COVID protocols will be in place and will be available for our Fans to review prior to arrival.
The Fair staff is working on a detailed cleaning and sanitization plan that focuses on all of the high touch points and restrooms on the property. Ticketing including both general admission and concert tickets will be encouraged to be purchased ahead of time to minimize touch points at the gate. More details about COVID-19 protocols will continue to be posted on our website for your convenience. Everything the Fair staff is planning is with our Fair attendees best interest in mind!
