Fair in the Air Cancelled

FAIR OAKS FARMS’ FAIR IN THE AIR CANCELLED
Event canceled due to thunderstorms.

FAIR OAKS INDIANA, (MAY 11, 2018) – Fair Oaks Farms’ announced the cancellation of the May 12, 2018 Fair in the Air Kite festival at 11am CST on Friday, May 11.

Due to the weather reports of 80% chance of thunderstorms throughout the duration of the event it is in our best interest to cancel the event. Fair Oaks Farms has explored countless options and all scenarios posed a safety risk for performers and attendees.

“Our organization has worked hard the past five months to present an exhilarating kite show for our guests,” said Julie Basich, Fair Oaks Farms’ COO. “But because of the safety challenges presented by the thunderstorms, we know the event would not come close to meeting the expectations of everyone involved – the Fair Oaks Farms staff, Fair in the Air performers and our guests.”

Though the 2018 Fair in the Air kite festival is cancelled, Fair Oaks Farms is offering 50% off admission both online with the code: RAIN, and on site admission purchases for Saturday May 12, and on Mother’s Day May 13. In addition Mother’s will receive free admission all weekend May 12 and 13.
