The South Florida Fair is in town this Friday, January 17, through February 2, so don’t miss out! The Fair is one of the best local events for parents, grandparents, and kids to spend time together having fun and enjoying rides. There’s music, food, and, of course, lots and lots of rides.
The theme of this year’s fair is “Play Ball, Play Fair!” Interactive and educational sports exhibits will pave the way throughout the Expo Center. The Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America exhibition, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution and the Florida Humanities Council, will teach our visitors the cultural impact and importance of the different sports in American communities. The National Baseball Hall of Fame's "Picturing America's Pastime" exhibition offers a snapshot of the photograph collection in the Museum's photo archive, spanning almost 150 years.
One of the greatest aspects of the annual fair is its agricultural and livestock exhibits which clearly provide the greatest variety of such exhibits anywhere within Palm Beach County. Even though agriculture is such a tremendous part of Palm Beach County’s economic base, many school children have never been exposed to it. However, at the annual South Florida Fair, not only can they see and learn all about agriculture, but can even witness a calf being born, or learn how a dairy is operated. The annual fair attracts over 500,000 people through its turnstiles.
