CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — The Jackson County Fair looks poised for a comeback this year, with organizers releasing the first list of coming events and concert headliners this week. The Expo announced a few weeks ago that they were optimistic about the fair's return.

This year's fair is scheduled to run from July 14 through 18. Tickets will be $12 for adults and kids over 13, $6 for seniors 62 to 74, and free for those either 12 and younger or 75 and older.

The Jackson County Fair - July 14-18, 2021

  • FREE parking everyday thanks to Butler Automotive Group
  • FREE fair admission for kids 12 and under, courtesy of the West Family Foundation
  • Sunday - FREE admission for EVERYONE courtesy of Ray’s Food Place

Due to limited capacity at many of the events, only a limited number of tickets will be sold for each day, and registration is required even for free admission. Tickets can be bought in advance at Sherm's Food 4 Less or at the Expo's website.

Attractions include free events and exhibits — more than 70 vendors selling everything from sunglasses and handbags to homemade fudge, creative arts competitions, livestock auctions at the Olsrud Arena, a petting zoo, and the Pirate's Parrot Show.

This year the fair will feature a new carnival from Paul Maurer Shows, and carnival-goers can save money by purchasing wristbands in advance at Food 4 Less or online. Wristbands are $25 in advance or $35 at the gate.

Wednesday night brings a night of "heart pounding, dirt stomping" bull riding from Challenge of Champions at the Isola Arena, free with admission. The tour features professional bullriders from around the Northwest and beyond.

Over the next three nights, concerts will be handled differently depending on Jackson County's COVID-19 risk level when the fair begins. Those will determine whether the concerts are enjoyed in the North Parking Lot or in the BiMart Amphitheater. Either way, concert tickets include parking in the north lot, with each ticket accounting for 4 to 6 people, depending on the risk level.

"If we get to 'Low-Risk Restrictions' we will open the BiMart Amphitheater and your car pass will be turned in for 6 GA Concert Tickets," organizers said. "This means there are a limited number of opportunities to watch these concerts in person — don’t miss out."

Concert lineup:

  • Thursday, July 15 - Matt Stell
  • Friday, July 16 - Marshall Tucker Band
  • Saturday, July 17 - Colt Ford
