The Kern County Fair kicks off at 3 p.m. on Wednesday with new attractions, a few missing concessions and new security protocols that allowed the 105-year-old event to return after last year’s cancellation due to the pandemic.

For 10 days (interrupted on Monday and Tuesday for a thorough cleaning), the show will welcome visitors for all kinds of rides, entertainment and competitions, including breeding competitions.

New this year is a Mind Works space featuring science and math-style family activities with giant board games and other attractions. A new ride called the Hawaiian Express – described as “a wild surf session through the waves of Maui, sped up!” – as well as a fun new house will add to the fun.

Expect to see new hand washing and disinfection stations among the measures designed to keep people safe. The county public health department will be at your disposal with information and access to COVID-19 vaccinations.

Tickets cost $ 12, $ 9 for people 62 and over, $ 5 for children 6 to 12. Entry is free for children 5 and under as well as for active and retired military personnel on presentation of an identity document. Parking costs $ 10.

Wristbands with unlimited access to the rides normally cost from $ 30 to $ 35, but can be purchased online, along with other offers, for just $ 28 at
