OSF prefers fairgoers to be vaccinated in advance of attending, and they ask that all attendees bring a mask, which is mandated inside fair buildings. Officials stress that anyone who has COVID-19 symptoms should stay home and respect the safety and well-being of others.

Meanwhile, fair guests ages 12 and older who have not been vaccinated will have an opportunity to do so at the fair. All three vaccines — Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson — will be available daily at Cascade Hall. Medical interpreters will be on site to assist.

Guests who choose to receive their vaccinations during their visit to the Oregon State Fair will receive a free entry ticket to return for an additional day at the fair in 2021 or 2022.

Vaccinations will take place in Cascade Hall near the Brickside Lounge:

•  noon-8 p.m Monday-Friday

•  10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday-Sunday
