THE SOUTH FLORIDA FAIR AND PALM BEACH COUNTY EXPOSITIONS, INC. is a nonprofit corporation 501 (C3) organized and existing pursuant to Chapter 616, Florida Statutes. It has a Board of Trustees comprised of seventeen (17) individuals who are responsible for setting policy and see that management of the association is carried out under direction of an executive staff consisting of the President/CEO and their Vice Presidents.
THE FAIRGROUNDS Approximately 130 acres comprise the real property commonly referred to as the "Fairgrounds". In 1957, Palm Beach County gave the Fair 100 acres at its present site but later took back 20 acres for the stockade. This contribution was made in consideration of the Fair agreeing to relocate from John Prince Park in order that the County could vie for a state university (PBCC).
Generally, the Fairgrounds is segregated into several pods or tracts: the parking tracts, Yesteryear Village, the Sound Advice Amphitheatre, and the exhibit buildings, including the Expo Center and the Agriplex.
The space available on the Fairgrounds for trade shows and exhibits exceeds 200,000 square feet.
During the annual South Florida Fair, the southern parking tract is utilized as the "midway" containing rides, shows, games, and concessions.
