WEST PALM BEACH — Guests attending the 2023 South Florida Fair will have plenty to roar about at next year’s event from Jan. 13-29. That’s because the 2023 theme, announced on June 1, is “Dino-Myte.”
Among the highlights being planned for the 2023 fair — up to a dozen full-scale, moving, scientifically accurate, animatronic dinosaurs and dinosaur-related exhibits.
Fair guests of all ages will be given the opportunity to act as paleontologists while digging for fossils and learning about the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods in a fun and interactive way.
“We always like to present an educational component to our fair,” said Vicki Chouris, the fair’s president and CEO. “This theme will allow our fairgoers to get up-close-and-personal with replicas of the most fascinating prehistoric creatures that include the mighty T-Rex of North America and the giant amphibious Spinosaurus from Africa.”
There also will be self-contained shows and family entertainment dedicated to dinosaurs along with walk-around performers in dinosaur costumes. Docents with realistic baby dinosaur puppets also will interact with fairgoers. More details will be revealed as the date draws closer to the fair.
The South Florida Fair is produced by the South Florida Fair & Palm Beach County Expositions, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and has a longstanding tradition of raising funds for educational and charitable purposes. Located at 9067 Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach, the 2023 South Florida Fair will kick off with its Ride-A-Thon at 5 p.m. on Jan. 12 and the full fair will be held Jan. 13 – Jan. 29.
