ORLAND, Calif. – The Glenn County Fairgrounds announced the 2021 Glenn County Fair is a go for May 20 through the 23.

This year’s theme is a re-do of the canceled 2020 Glenn County Fair “Sweet Delights and Carnival Lights.”

Carnival lights and sweet treats are just some of the things coming back to Glenn County in May.

Fair planning by the Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers is in full swing to bring the best annual event in Glenn County.

“We are all over the moon excited to be able to host the annual Glenn County Fair this year,” Miki Martin, CEO of the Glenn County Fairgrounds said. “Our community missed it so much last year.”

The Glenn County Fair will feature all the favorite fair foods like corn dogs and lemonade, outdoor entertainment like pig races and musical entertainment, grandstand events, shopping and more.

The Junior Livestock Auction will be taking place Saturday, May 22 beginning at 10 a.m.

Old and new buyers alike are invited to support Glenn County’s Junior Livestock Exhibitors through the purchase of a
market animal.

The Auction will be held in person as well as streamed live online at EZ2bid.com, buyers may register online anytime.

Fair patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time online, limited tickets will be sold each day to follow the guidance.

All guests will be asked to follow current CDC guidelines like wearing masks, keeping a distance from others not in your family group, and washing their hands often. 

Fair management said it has worked closely with the Glenn County Public Health over the last few months to develop a plan that follows the current guidelines in the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy plan.

The current plan under California’s red tier status allows for outdoor live events, such as the Glenn County Fair, to host up to 15% of maximum grounds capacity.
