Pima County Fair Is A Big Tucson Attraction
Tips For A Great Experience
The Pima County Fair is held in August every year. It is Tucson’s biggest annual event! Visitors can enjoy live Pima County Fair concerts, food, exhibits, attractions, automobile shows, animals and much more!
The Pima County Fair grounds includes four halls, 2 stages, horse arenas, a cantina, and a stock barn.
Even Though a fair is generally predictable with rides, carnival games and cotton candy, the Pima County Fair is unique, in the fact that it offers some kind of special thing going on every day. Whether it is a concert, demolition derby or animal exhibit.
Each day at the Pima County Fair is different.
For those not interested in rides don’t stay away. Try to win a teddy bear or visit one of the exhibit halls.
Don’t forget there is always the food……..and beverages.
Other annual events are held just South of the Pima County Fair Grounds.
