In June, Berrien County Youth Fair officials announced the postponement of the 2020 Fair due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Since then board members have been working hard behind the scenes to try and bring back the same artists in 2021 that were scheduled to perform in 2020. The board of directors can now excitedly announce they were able to do that! The 2021 schedule will be the same as what was planned for 2020.
The 2021 schedule will be as follows:
Monday, August 16, 2021 – Truck and Tractor Pull
Tuesday, August 17, 2021 – Circus Continental
Wednesday, August 18 – The Oak Ridge Boys with special guest Emily Ann Roberts
Thursday, August 19, 2021 – Granger Smith with special guest Earl Dibbles, Jr.
Friday, August 20, 2021 – Demolition Derby
Saturday, August 21, 2021 – Bullmania
Patrons who had previously purchased tickets for the 2020 BCYF grandstand shows can expect to be contacted via email from Ticket Sauce (our ticket provider) or phone (if an email was not provided at the time of ticket purchase) with options for their tickets. All tickets will automatically roll over (with the same seats that were purchased this year) unless ticket holders fill out a refund form. Ticket holders will be given the option for a credit for future ticket purchases, or be issued a refund. All requests for credits or refunds must be made via response to the email by July 31, 2020. After July 31 tickets will automatically roll over to the 2021 shows and our no refund policy will be in effect.
Ticket holders with questions regarding the ticket refunding are asked to call the Fair office at 269-473-4251.
The Berrien County Youth Fair has been postponed for 2020, but plans are in the works for a showcase for only the youth exhibitors and their parents/guardians this August. The Berrien County 2020 Showcase – Where Youth are Essential will be held August 15 – 23. The Berrien County Youth Fair plans on celebrating their 75th FAIR next year, August 16-21, 2021 with the theme of “Diamonds are Fair-ever”.
