“Although the 2020 Dairy Breakfast drive-thru event was a great success last summer, the goal of the Fair Park Committee, sponsors, vendors, volunteers, other stakeholders and Fair Park staff is to offer an in person 2021 Dairy Breakfast and adjusting the date to August for this year’s event will hopefully allow us to engage consumers and bring an awareness of our proud and robust Jefferson County Dairy Industry” said Amy Listle, Fair Park Director.
