John C. Alkire, CEO - The Big Fresno Fair


"Its Almost Fair Time!"
Every year in October, more than 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!
Founded in 1884, The Big Fresno Fair is the 5th largest fair in the State and represents the 21st District Agricultural Association, an entity of the California Department of Food & Agriculture’s (CDFA) Division of Fairs & Expositions. The Big Fresno Fair holds the rare distinction of operating in the same location at the same time of year since its inception. The Fresno Fairgrounds encompasses 165 acres of land in the City of Fresno. The land is owned by Fresno County and leased to the Fair under a 50-year land lease that allows it to continue to operate. The 2019 Big Fresno Fair will mark its 136th year.

The Fair is self-funded through business operations and generous community contributions. More than 1.7 million people visit the Fairgrounds annually! This number continues to grow as the Fairgrounds’ popularity increases each year due to the more than $11 million invested into the facilities over the past 15 years. The Fresno Fairgrounds serves as an economic stimulator for the community, contributing more than $68.8 million in economic impact to Fresno County annually, according to an independent report from 2002.

LUNCH ENTREES: include: Ciabatta Rolls with Butter, Dessert, Iced Tea, Coffee, & Water
Hot entrée : Grilled Lemon & Garlic Chicken, Rice Pilaf and Roasted Garlic Green Beans
Salad entree: Italian Garden Salad
Fresno Rotarians, their guests and future Rotarians meet at noon at Cornerstone 1525 Fulton Street, Fresno, CA 93721
