Sensory-Friendly Time

In recognition of that, the final Sunday, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., will feature some special activities for guests who may enjoy their visit in a little bit less noisy and a little less bright atmosphere. These activities, in addition to the Fair’s daily offerings that may be more quiet or less crowded at certain times, have been gathered into the guide below. 2024 information coming soon!
