Everyone loves a chance to celebrate. Whenever joy is in the air, laughter on the wind and smiles aplenty, some of the best memories are made. Starting this Friday, March 17th and continuing for ten days until Sunday, March 26th, Sarasota’s citizens will be able to access this kind of delight at the 81st Annual Sarasota County Fair!
All the Details on the 81st Annual Sarasota County Fair
As always, there’s something for everyone at the fair. From agriculture and horticulture, to wild rides and delectable food, you’ll find enough to fill a day or two at least. Come for the animals at the steer shows and swine shows, as well as the crowd-pleasing sea lions. Or perhaps you’d like to admire the most beautiful plants in Sarasota, and maybe buy one to take home! Thrill-seekers will find fun in the amusement rides, provided by Belle City Amusement, Inc. Don’t forget to check out this year’s new ride, Alien Abduction.
For those who like some seated entertainment, be sure to check the two show stages. There will be live music and hilarious comedy. If make-and-takes are you thing, arts and crafts will also be available. Plus, parents can take advantage of the Kiddie Land for a father-mother rest break, while the kids enjoy the carousel, of course.
Being a family-friendly event, the Sarasota Fair keeps prices reasonable. Regular admission is only $8. Children between the ages of 6 and 17 gain entry for a mere $4, while those age five and under can enter for free. Senior citizen and active military tickets are also $4. Last but not least, parking is completely free!
So come once, come twice, or every day if you can! There’s so much to do, see, and experience, and the fair is only here for a week and a half.
