With various state and local restrictions having been lifted and in accordance with our 2021 Health and Safety Plan, the Elkhart County 4-H Fair is now able to open the gates of the Elkhart County 4-H Fair at full capacity July 23-31.
These changes include:
Guests will no longer need to purchase admission tickets for Sunday, July 25. Any guests who purchased an admission ticket for Sunday, July 25, 2021 via credit card will automatically receive a refund for their purchase, back on their credit card. Any guest who visited the Fairgrounds Office and purchased an admission ticket for Sunday, July 25, 2021, with cash, may receive a refund by visiting the Fairgrounds Office and returning their admission ticket.
Guests will no longer have to choose what day they would like to visit the fair when purchasing their admission tickets. Tickets previously purchased for Saturday, July 24 – Saturday, July 30 (except for Sunday, July 25, which are being immediately refunded), can now be used any day of the Fair.
Any admission tickets purchased for $5 First Friday (July 23) remain valid on that date only.
