If it’s raining at the time of a Grandstand event, the event is delayed until the rain ends, like a rain delay in baseball. Please know that Grandstand Event cancellations are usually a “game-time” decision. We try and do everything we can to get the event in for the evening.
The Big Butler Fair does everything possible to try and stay open, but in the event of bad weather the carnival rides may close and shows/events may be cancelled. In the unlikely event of a “rain-out,” no refunds for gate admission will be given.
The food stands open at 11:00am.
Depending on crowds, concerts, day, grandstand events and weather, the fair can stay open longer or close earlier. As a general rule of thumb, the fair closes around 11:00pm.
You can find a daily fair schedule online.
