You can do your part to help by staying HEALTHY…follow the guidelines of our health officials and taking care of yourself and your family.


Find the little things that make you HAPPY…the fresh air on a walk, encouraging sidewalk chalk art notes, a friendly wave shared with neighbors, laughter of your kids playing…whatever that may be.


And most of all, remember to remain HOPEFUL…we are hopeful for the future and know our current situation is not forever. We are hopeful for October when we can see you all again at the 2020  Big Fresno Fair!  


So today, take action to #flattenthecurve by staying at home and practice social distancing. We are in this together and together we will get through it! 🌍

Big Fresno Fair Information Update

On March 15, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) updated their interim guidance concerning mass gatherings and large public events to state that no public events of 50 or more people should be held for the next eight weeks, which is being supported and enforced by Governor Newsom. The Fair is working closely with each of our rental clients to determine possible dates later in the year that their event can be postponed until. Additionally – we have temporarily closed operation of both satellite wagering facilities – The Starting Gate at the Fairgrounds and the Polo Lounge at Club One Casino. We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and are staying in contact with our Federal, State and local government and health entities to determine when it is appropriate to resume large public events.

The health and safety of our team members and our community continues to be top priority and we remain committed to staying informed, educated and taking the necessary steps to enhance public safety. We thank you for your patience and support, and if you should have any questions, please email info@fresnofair.com or call us at (559) 650-FAIR. Don’t forget to stay calm and practice the CDC’s recommend healthy habits here: http://bit.ly/CDChealthytips
