Though the Los Angeles County Fair has been canceled this year — for the first time since World War II — organizers for the Antelope Valley Fair & Alfafa Festival say the show will go on as scheduled in August.
“The Antelope Valley Fair & Alfalfa Festival has existed for 82 years, and together we will continue to be an iconic event, providing countless opportunities and lifelong memories. We will have a 2020 fair season. We will not quit, we will not cancel and we will prevail! We are AV Fair Strong,” according to a statement designed to quash rumors of a shutdown.
Some fair activities may be virtual, but others are expected to take place on the fairgrounds as usual.
” Yes, it will be different, yes it will be safe and yes it will be memorable. Many of us long for our traditional experiences, but we must be agile and committed to staying connected to each other and to our community in new ways as we recover safely together,” organizers promised.
Current plans include hosting the Kiwanis Jr. Livestock Auction in late August, as well as select virtual exhibit competitions, battle of the bands, community stage performances and possibly drive-thru fair food.
