Collier County Fair

Explore an agricultural fair, discover a rainforest, and enjoy a carnival all in one place at the Collier County Fair in Naples from Thursday, March 17 to Sunday, March 27.
The Collier County Fair displays the area’s agricultural roots by hosting a series of livestock competitions all week featuring large steer and swine as well as petite rabbits and poultry.
Don Jolly, president of the fair board, said it’s unique that children have been raising animals to bring to sell for college money at the fair’s livestock sale.
The fair will give residents a taste of the exotic in shows such as the Amazing Rainforest Experience. Meet a fishing cat, Bengal tigers, a ringtail lemur and other rare animals. A live shark encounter allows visitors to see how sharks interact with human trainers.
Jolly said the largest rides that have ever been in Collier County will be at this year’s fair.
Carnival rides, including a Ferris wheel and seven “super rides,” will be in full operation during all hours of the fair. Visitors can expect barbecue, chocolate, tacos and a wide variety of other foods in addition to traditional carnival fare.
Admission is $10 for people ages 12 years and older, $5 for children ages 6 through 11 and free for children 5 and under. Visitors can purchase a MegaPass for $20 which admits one person to the Collier County Fair for one day or night and includes free ride privileges for all ticketed rides.
