The Big Fresno Fair is far more than just the Central Valley’s largest annual event, attracting nearly 550,000 patrons each year. It is a year-round rental facility spanning 165 acres held under a 50-year lease with the County of Fresno, and is host to over 175 events that annually attract more than 1 million additional visitors. Unique to all California fairs, the District operates two year-round satellite wagering facilities - The Starting Gate at the Fairgrounds and The Polo Lounge at Club One Casino in Downtown Fresno. From the Fair event, satellite wagering and interim events, more than 1.5 million people visit the Fairgrounds annually - a number that increases each year as the Fairgrounds’ popularity continues to grow, in part due to the many capital improvements completed over the past decade.
