The OC Fair is the latest upcoming annual event to be canceled due to concerns of coronavirus. The OC Fair & Event Center Board of Directors voted unanimously today to cancel the event.
“The decision to cancel the 2020 OC Fair was not taken lightly by the board. As governor-appointed representatives, the board has a responsibility to provide a safe experience to the community-at-large, the hundreds of people who depend on county fairs for their livelihood, fairgoers and OC Fair staff,” said Board Chair Sandra Cervantes.
The OC Fair has been a Southern California summer staple since 1890. The 23-day event welcomes more than 1.3 million fairgoers each year and has an estimated economic impact of $350 million annually.
“While many of our guests have expressed extreme disappointment over the idea of the 2020 Fair being canceled, we strongly believe it is the right thing to do in this current situation. However, we will keep the spirit of the OC Fair alive with virtual fair concepts such as contests, competitions, entertainment, and concessions to bring the fair experience to guests through ocfair.com and social media,” said Cervantes.
