Boca Raton, FL — Each year, the South Florida Fair builds its award-winning fair around a theme and in 2020, organizers have selected “Play Ball, Play Fair!” The 2020 South Florida Fair, which will be held January 17- February 2, 9067 Southern Blvd., will be a celebration of popular sports in the community.
“At this year’s themed exposition, we will be inviting our fairgoers to experience the essence of sports, which includes competition, fair play, and the zeal to win, all in the name of fun,” said South Florida Fair President & CEO Vicki Chouris.
Interactive and educational sports exhibits will pave the way as guests stroll through the Expo Center. The Hometown Teams exhibition, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institute and the Florida Humanities Council, will teach visitors the cultural impact and importance of the different sports in American communities. The National Baseball Hall of Fame’s “Picturing America’s Pastime” will offer a snapshot of the photograph collection in the museum’s photo archive, spanning almost 150 years.
With Virtual Reality becoming so popular, guests will be able to strap on a VR headset and experience simulated realities in a variety of sports, including golf, soccer, football, hockey, basketball and baseball. A batting cage, pitching cage and field goal kick will be available to test patrons’ skills as well.
Of course, fairgoers will still be able to count on the fair’s award-winning agriculture and livestock program; more than 200 rides, games and attractions; four stages of music and entertainment; historic Yesteryear Village; a creative crafts and skills competition; the Miss South Florida Fair & Miss Palm Beach County Scholarship competitions; the 20th annual Starz of the Future contest; and Artist Alley, featuring local painters, photographers and sculptors.
Additional new features and attractions will be added and announced as the 2020 fair draws closer.
