Service Animals vs Companion Animals
Over the past few fair seasons some of our member fairs have had issues with fairgoers wishing to bring pets into a fair claiming they are a "service animal".

The ADA defines a service animal as "any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability".  Pets that are companions are not considered service animals and therefore can be denied access to any fair who has a policy against pets.
