Be there, the fair! The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair, which was set to start in mid-March, has been rescheduled for Nov. 18-Dec. 5, 2021.
So instead of the springtime South Florida tradition, we’ll get to enjoy the fair fun in a whole different season.

The official website has this announcement: “When the emergency order was issued by Miami-Dade County in March 2020, we could not have foreseen the effects and duration of the pandemic. At the time, we were confident we would be able to re-open for our March 2021 dates. As the Youth Fair’s annual Spring dates approach, we have continued to closely monitor the coronavirus pandemic. After careful consideration and with the best interests of our guests, vendors, volunteers, performers and staff in mind, we have decided to reschedule this year’s Youth Fair to November 18 – December 5, 2021.”
The Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition Center is at 10901 Coral Way (SW 24th St.), Miami. General admission is $14. Parking is free, and all entertainment and concerts are free of charge, too.
