Fair Parents and Exhibitors:

 

PLEASE….  STOP. WITH. THE. RUMORS.

 

 Regarding Credit Card processing fees:

 Beginning this year, for the Market Animal Auction and the Small Animal Auction - there will be a 1%  (one percent) credit card processing fee charged to the buyer.  This fee is more than fair, as we are all  dealing with credit card charges.   Additionally, if we must bill you after the Sale, a charge of 1.5% will be added to the invoice.  This information will be on all Buyer’s Agreements.   

 There are rumors of a 5% or 10% credit card charge  - which are absolutely not true.   Please do not feed into the negative atmosphere that has been created.

 The Board of Directors of the Southwest Florida & Lee County Fair Association continue to work diligently to bring a great Show to our community.  We are proud of our Livestock Program and look forward to 2023 being another great year.   

Please do not hesitate to email us with any questions.
