Mid-State Fair Is On For 2021

Concerts still a question mark

One of the biggest community events of the year on the Central and South Coasts is going to be back this summer, after a one-year shutdown due to the pandemic.

The 2021 California Mid-State Fair will take place July 21st-August 1st.

It will be the fair’s 75th anniversary. Officials say there could be some COVID-19 safety restrictions in place, like reduced capacity for certain attractions.

One of the big questions is about the fair’s concerts. The fair is known for bringing some of the biggest names in music to Paso Robles, like Garth Brooks and Cardi B.

It’s unclear what will be possible. Another question is what acts might be available, with touring by musicians just starting to get underway again.
