Security for 2017 Fair

The Pensacola Interstate Fair wants to assure all of our Fair fans and loyal customers that there WILL BE SECURITY for the 2017 Fair. Any information that states otherwise is false and should be disregarded.

The safety of our fairgoers is always among our top concerns and we take nothing more seriously. We have hired STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS to work the full 11 days of the 2017 Fair, October 19-29. These officers have FULL LAW ENFORCEMENT POWERS granted to other peace officers of the state. The security is fully funded by the Fair – we are spending over $140,000 this year on hired security to ensure the safety of our fairgoers. Come and have a great time!

Age Requirements

We also wanted to mention that there are NO NEW AGE REQUIREMENTS of any kind in place for the 2017 Fair for those 18 years old and younger. Any information that states otherwise is false and should be disregarded.

We will be having a scavenger hunt at the Fair! Kids and adults alike are encouraged to take a short break from the rides and explore the many things that there are to do and see at the Fair! You never know, you may find something that you never even knew was there!

Scavenger Hunt Rules

Find 20 of the 35 items listed. Take a selfie to prove it. When you have completed your 20 selfies, go to the information booth located in the center of the Fair (near the carousel) and show your selfies to Melissa to receive your prizes.

What’s in it for me?

If you complete this hunt, you will receive a coupon to use on the fairgrounds for a 2 for 1 Pronto Pup discount coupon and a free drip coffee at Drowsy Poet as well as a ribbon for completing the Fair Scavenger Hunt.
