Whidbey Island Fairgrounds & Events Center

COVID-19 Response Measures

May 28 – Effective May 30, Saturday, the horse arena will be open from 8 am to 4 pm daily. Groups no larger than 6 will be allowed in the arena at any given time. Social distancing must be practiced at all times. Riders are required to provide their own hand sanitizer and face protection. Single groups are asked to limit their riding time to 1 hour.  We are asking the riders in the community respect one another so we may serve as many as possible under the circumstances.  The arena will be groomed on Tuesday and Thursday mornings for the time being.  Most gatherings/events typical for the Fairgrounds are still prohibited.
