SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. – The 70th annual Spokane County Interstate Fair and Rodeo is scheduled to take place Sept. 10-19, 2021. This year’s theme is “More fun in 2021.” For a full list of events and schedule, please visit: www.spokanecounty.org/4606/Interstate-Fair.
The Spokane County Interstate Fair and Rodeo has been working with the Washington State Department of Health and the Spokane Regional Health District to implement COVID-19 guidelines and provide a safe and clean environment for Fair goers. Spokane County is committed to providing Fair staff with the resources necessary to help in their commitment to maintain a safe and clean environment for our workers, guests, and the community. As part of this commitment, guests of the Fair are being asked to help in the efforts to hold a successful event this year.
Most importantly, for those who do not feel well or have any COVID-19 symptoms, please refrain from visiting the Fair, stay home or isolated from other members of the public, and follow guidance from the Spokane Regional Health District.
By state mandate, guests will be required to wear masks in any indoor facility throughout the Fairgrounds. Although the Fair boasts 97 acres to spread out, guests are also encouraged to wear masks outdoors throughout the Fairgrounds when social distancing is not possible. For those that do not bring masks, each entrance will have masks available for those who need one.
As an alternative to visiting the Fair on the busier weekends, guests are encouraged to consider visiting the Fair on the less busy weekdays. There are 10 days to enjoy the activities at the Fair.
To help accommodate for social distancing guidelines, additional seating areas have been set up and spread out for eating and building layouts for vendors and exhibits have also been reconfigured.
Many improvements have also been made in regard to sanitation at the Fair. Thanks to a $50,000 grant from the Washington Department of Agriculture, touchless water faucets have been installed in all of the conveniently located restrooms throughout the property. In addition, hand sanitizers have also been installed in buildings and throughout the property.
