Walton County Fair

September 22, 2020

October 12, 2020 @ 5:00 pm – October 17, 2020 @ 8:00 pm

The James Gang Amusements from Andalusia, Alabama, will bring their caravan of rides and games to the Walton County Fair once again. The Fair will be held from Monday, Oct. 12 – Saturday, Oct. 17.

This year is going to be different. The Fair is only going to have the outside events. That is limited to the midway and the livestock shows. There will be no entry into the building. As a volunteer organization we do not have the manpower to insure everyone will be following those guidelines such as wearing a mask. If you feel like you are at risk to participate in this years fair as a visitor or if you feel sick or feverish on the day that you would like to come then we ask that you stay home for your own well being and for the others in your community.

The rides will be cleaned between riders, there will be sanitizers stationed throughout the property, and the midway employees have been working throughout the Southeast during the pandemic so they are very careful with their customers. Because of these protocols you may have to anticipate longer than normal wait times.

While all of these protocols are in place from our midway company, the organizers hope that you wear masks for the majority of the time that you are there and keep family groups together and separated from others as much as possible. The only and best way to have a successful and safe Fair is with the help of all of the people of our wonderful community.
