Get ready to rev it up: the Edmonds City Fair and Car Show makes its in-person return on Saturday, July 23.

After taking a two-year pandemic hiatus, the annual fair returns to Edmonds Park this year offering a variety of food and family-friendly activities including live music, face painting, a petting zoo, and a classic car show.

This year, the fair’s live entertainment lineup features a showcase of Latin American dance and a blast (or maybe a few blasts) from the past.

Burnaby-based dance troupe Grupo America is set to perform its mix of Latin American dance routines. The group touts a repertoire of dances from across Latin America, including Colombia, Mexico, Cuba, Brazil and more.

Fairgoers can also expect to see some classic throwbacks as well, as tributes to Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline and Roy Orbison are all slated for the event.

And last but not least, the classic car show is making its return alongside the fair this year.
