2021 South Florida Mini Fair-LAST WEEKEND!
DATE: January 15-31
COST/TIME: For More Information
From January 15-31, the South Florida Mini Fair will be something you and your family can attend to see some of the Fair’s traditional favorites such as Dennis Lee, the Racing Pigs and the Sand Sculpture with smaller crowds.
The icing on the cake is MOST of the Fair vendors will be with us and Fair food will be everywhere and as delicious as ever! The decision to eliminate the major rides and just have kiddie rides was made so that we have room to spread out the activities to allow everyone room to social distance. You will also be able to see all of what really makes us a Fair – the farm animals, agricultural displays, and our 9-acre historic Yesteryear Village will be open for everyone to enjoy.
Music and entertainment will be presented outdoors in our new entertainment venue. Safety measures will be enforced and include mandatory mask wearing by everyone, safety protocols for all vendors, and a revamped site layout to accommodate more distancing. There also will be hand sanitizing stations throughout the fairgrounds.
Ready? The full-fledged South Florida Fair – “An Earthly A-Fair” is now scheduled for May 7-23, 2021. We will hold our Fair in May since we hope the vaccine will allow large events to be conducted safely.

City of West Palm Beach Green Market is Back
The West Palm Beach GreenMarket will be closed on Saturday, January 16 and Saturday, January 23:
Due to a recent increase in the weekly COVID-19 positivity average, an anticipated post-holiday surge, and a slower than expected rollout of COVID-19 vaccine, the City of West Palm Beach is suspending all existing permits for events occurring through January 24, 2021. This will include events produced by the city, such as the West Palm Beach GreenMarket, Clematis by Night, Sunday on the Waterfront and any private or public property permit issued or pending. The City will continue to monitor the situation and modify or extend the suspension as needed.
There will be several initial changes this year including the suspension of activities for kids, additional café seating, live music, food samples, and bottomless mimosas. Single mimosas will be available for purchase for $4 at the entrance. Merchant tents will be placed 10 feet apart.
Attendees must wear masks to enter, will need to follow a path, and are encouraged to shop quickly. Hand sanitizing and hand washing stations will be placed throughout. Pre- and post-shopping, attendees are encouraged to patronize the multiple downtown restaurants’ Dining on the Spot locations.
***The City will amend West Palm Beach GreenMarket COVID policies as local restrictions are lifted.
