One change for this year's CHSF is that the organizers are welcoming a new ride partner, Gold Star Amusements, whose Midway will feature classic super rides and more.

Another highlight will be Lagniappe Lane which includes free attractions such as the Show Me Safari Petting Zoo & Swine Races, the World of Wonders, Texas Tommy's Wild West Revue and Crawfish Village featuring daily entertainment and local food vendors.

There will be additional policies and procedures for this year's fair in relation to COVID-19. Face coverings will be required for entry and while on the grounds except while actively eating or drinking.

Parking for the CHSF is going to be available for free at Cajun Field. There is an admission fee of $3 per person. Guests age 3 and under are free with an accompanying adult.

There are still some elements of this year's fair that are being tweaked and finalized, so check back on the Cajundome's dedicated CHSF page for updates.
