On Friday, November 10th, between the hours of 11:00am and 1:00pm, sensory friendly hours have been designed for people who might find the typical fair visit too much to handle, both kids and adults. A more relaxed version of the Hillsborough County Fair where the rides will run with no flashing lights, music, or microphones and lights and the volume on the PA announcements will be turned down.

The fair will offer free admission for one sensory guest and one companion to the fair during these sensory hours. There will be a sensory map provided to show quiet zones at the fair where noise and lights will be limited. Education areas and entertainment will be provided with admission. Farmer Sydney, our fair mascot, will also be available for a meet and greet and pictures.
