The cancellation of the Orange County Fair in 2020 due to coronavirus marked the first time the annual event had not been held since World War II. However, the 2021 OC Fair is back and better than ever with the theme: “Time for Fun.” Officials from the OC Fair have been working in conjunction with public health agencies to develop protocols to keep fairgoers safe while bringing back the activities that make the event special to so many. Additionally, the Fair Board voted to keep ticket prices at the 2019 OC Fair rates, which is $12 general admission and $7 for children and seniors on weekdays (Wednesday, Thursday), and $14 general admission and $7 for children and seniors on weekends (Friday, Saturday and Sunday). The current plan is for the fair to be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, as it traditionally has been.
