It is the policy of the Red River Valley Fair Association to prohibit patrons from entering a Grandstand or Beer Garden event at the Fairgrounds with outside food or drink. It is further the policy of the Red River Valley Fair Association to prohibit patrons from entering the Fairgrounds with outside food or drink when vendors are selling similar food or drink (other than alcohol) on the Fairgrounds. However, consistent with its obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Red River Valley Fair Association will allow patrons to bring outside food or drink into the Fairgrounds at any time, if the patron states they need to enter the Fairgrounds with outside food or drink because of a disability. If a patron states he or she has a disability, event staff will not ask the patron questions about his or her disability, nor will event staff ask the patron to present proof of a disability. Event staff may limit the quantity of outside food and drink to a reasonable amount to be consumed by the patron with a disability during the event.
Enacted as a Red River Valley Fair Association Policy on 17 October 2019.
