Deschutes County Fair ‘Back in the Saddle’ after 1-year COVID hiautus


The Deschutes County Fair is “Back in the Saddle” and will return for the 101st edition July 28-Aug. 1 in Redmond

Fairgoers can expect a full array of animals, agriculture, concerts, carnival rides and county fair fare along with shopping and exhibits.

Specific programming such as concerts and other entertainment options will be announced at a later date.

“We are truly grateful that we can once again invite our community to celebrate the largest event in Central Oregon,” said Fair & Expo Director Geoff Hinds. “We know that Fair is a special tradition for so many in our community and we’re excited to welcome guests back this summer in a safe and responsible way.”

The Deschutes County Fair & Expo will be following all state and local health guidance, which may result in event modifications.

Adjustments will likely include reduced capacities and the understanding that certain attractions will need to have reduced capacity, depending on state and local health guidelines that are in place at the time of the 2021 Fair.

County Commissioners canceled the fair last year in May due to COVID concerns.

Fairgoers are encouraged to check the Deschutes County Fair & Rodeo website at for the most up-to-date information.

Admission tickets for the 2021 fair will go on sale July 5th and will be sold exclusively online with limited availability at the Fair box office.
