State Fair back on track for Aug 12-22

A traditional Missouri State Fair is expected to return Aug. 12-22 in Sedalia, with a complete lineup of livestock shows, exhibits, concerts, rodeo and bull riding, vendors, carnival midway and more.

“We are looking forward with confidence and hope that the fair you have come to know and love will take place this August,” said Fair Director Mark Wolfe. “We are plan­ning an event steeped in tradition, along with new and exciting things to experience.”

With the theme, “Our Missouri Celebra­tion,” the 2021 fair will commemorate the state’s 200th birthday in partnership with the Missouri Bicentennial Association. Special anni­versary exhibits, activities, entertainment and more will be featured across the grounds throughout the 11 days of the fair.

Wolfe said he and other State Fair planners will continue to work with health officials to mon­itor the COVID-19 status and make modifi­cations as necessary for the August events.

“The safety of our guests and staff is of utmost importance to us,” Wolfe said. “As we move forward with planning for the fair, we will be reviewing our cleaning protocols, along with the addition of more hand sanitizing and washing stations across the fairgrounds.”
