Augmented Reality 

Local company EXAR Studios has been busy preparing the Engage A.R.t  App that is designed to bring some unique Fair experiences to our much-loved fairgoers that could not be with us in-person this year. 
Once downloaded (for FREE), the Engage App can be used in one of approximately 30 designated locations throughout the city and some surrounding communities. The locations are primarily parks and large outdoor settings giving people plenty of room to safely enjoy the experiences. The complete list of locations is available here.
