Riverside County officials announced on Friday that the 2021 Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival set to begin on February 12 has been canceled. The Queen Scheherazade Scholarship Pageant scheduled for November 2020 is also canceled. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has caused the cancellation of all scheduled events on the fairgrounds since the middle of March.
With Riverside County Public Health planning to keep the Federal Medical Station in place at the site until the end of the calendar year, staff is unable to properly plan and execute the fair. “It was a difficult decision to cancel, but with the uncertainty of how long the fairgrounds will be used as a testing center and back up hospital, it was one that had to be made,” said Riverside County Fair Advisory Board Chari Lupe Ramos Amith.
County officials hope the festival will return for the fair’s 75th anniversary in 2022. For more information, visit www.datefest.org.
