CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- The Jackson County Fair is returning to the Expo, but the pandemic has brought on some changes.

The fair will last from July 14-18 with live music, rides, fair food, and carnival games.

The Director for the Jackson County Expo, Helen Funk told Newswatch 12 that people can get their tickets online in advance, or at the gate during the fair. Funk also added that the pandemic caused an elongated schedule.

"Because we didn't have our restrictions lifted until much later in the game, a lot of the 4H program is being scheduled all the way throughout the next two weeks...The dog show will be here the weekend before the fair opens."

Funk went on to say that the fair could not happen this year without a special tribute to everyone apart of last year's wildfires.

"We're going to be doing something this year, and this year only, and that's going to be happening at our Mase Building, that was a hub during the fires during the recovery, and we're going to be calling it the Southern Oregon Strong Building."

During the fair, Funk said it can be used as a space to cool off and write thank you notes to first responders.

Funk said it was promised to the community that the area would be turned into a building for closure and fun and adds doing that at the fair is the perfect time for it.
