Mission Statement

Born out of a desire to showcase the agricultural bounty of the region in 1884, The Big Fresno Fair continues to showcase agriculture, providing a link between urban and rural California. This is done by educating Valley residents on the region’s rich agricultural heritage and vast industry through exhibits and educational attractions. Educational exhibits and attractions can be found throughout the grounds that not only focus on agriculture but also highlight water conservation, the environment, and more. In addition, the Fair supports education through its variety of programs - Fair Education, 4.0 & Above Scholastic Achievement Program, Big Band Review, and more. The Big Fresno Fair celebrates its community in countless ways, educates Fairgoers through a variety of programs and exhibits, and undoubtedly has fun with numerous family-friendly attractions!


Every year in October, nearly 600,000 people come together for two weeks to enjoy the Valley’s largest annual event - The Big Fresno Fair. People from all backgrounds, ethnicities and beliefs join together to celebrate this longstanding annual tradition. Whether it is the live music, intriguing exhibits, fun attractions, community performances, delicious food, signature events, carnival rides or live horse racing that bring them out, there is one thing for certain...The Big Fresno Fair is the place to be in October!
