South Florida Fair

Since 1912 each January, over a half million visitors enjoy 17 fun filled days at the South Florida Fair, one of Florida’s oldest and largest community events. Fairgoers are entertained by first class stage shows, national concert performances, sensational midway rides, unique shopping and the best of fair food.

The 2024 edition of the South Florida Fair runs from Friday January 12th to Sunday, January 28th at the South Florida Fairgrounds, located at 9067 Southern Blvd in West Palm Beach. Hours and directions are available online.

This year’s theme celebrates the ocean and marine wildlife with lots of interactive activities for all ages to enjoy. See a live shark show, get up-close with sea lions, walk-through an immersive underwater experience and interact with local organizations that educate our community on how to keep the oceans healthy, clean and thriving!

Visitors experience educational and interactive experiences at historic Yesteryear Village, our award winning Agriplex, and each year are presented with a different themed exposition in our 80,000-square foot Exposition Center.
