The Board of Directors of the Maricopa County Fair Association has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Maricopa County Fair. Although the board and staff felt we could implement all the necessary precautions to present a safe event to our community, the rising case numbers and instability of COVID-19 in our state caused us to take another look at the event. With so many moving parts including carnival rides, games, stages, performers, food concessionaires, commercial vendors, and of course our patrons, in an effort to follow current mass gathering guidelines to mitigate public health risks, the fair just wouldn’t be the fair. The health and safety of our guests, partners, and participants comes first and foremost! Rest assured, we are planning to come back huge in ’22! Please stay tuned for more information on the return of the Maricopa County Fair! Thank you for your support in this difficult time.
The Maricopa County Fair, Inc is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization operated for the betterment of the community. Though we are the recognized "County Fair" for Maricopa County, the fair receives no funding directly from the county. The fair membership of the Maricopa County Fair is comprised of forty five elected commissioners and two ex officio members. The fair is governed by a nineteen member Board of Directors with five officers including, President, President Elect, Treasurer, Secretary and Past President which comprise the Executive Committee. Members of the Board of Directors volunteer their time and effort. The day to day operations of the corporation are managed by a contracted management team that serve the role of Executive Director. The fair relies heavily on volunteers from the community to fulfill it's mission.
