DATE: October 9 - 18
Mon – Thurs: 4:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Fri – Sun: 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM



We are bringing the Valley a bit of this longstanding tradition in a new, safe way with “Drive-Thru Eats” – a 10-day food series featuring 18 Fair food booths, vendor booths, popular Fair entertainers and music, plus virtual features! In alignment, the Fair partnered with the Fresno County Department of Public Health to bring attendees vital health information and services.

Enjoy music from Patrick Contreras and Travis Brooks, plus local community performance groups and your favorite strolling entertainers like Lanky the Clown, Pirate Captain Arr and Cowboys Slim & Curly as you drive through the Fairgrounds on your Fair food adventure! More details on the Fair entertainment line-up will be shared in the coming weeks!

Important Details You Need to Know Before You Go:

  • Event is “cashless preferred”; while cash will be accepted, debit and credit cards are preferred.
  • Face coverings will be required for whoever is ordering and/or receiving food.
  • Enter off of Kings Canyon Avenue into the Carnival Lot; attendees will exit onto Butler Avenue.
  • Fast Pass Entry is off of Kings Canyon; watch for signage.
  • Attendees must remain in their vehicles at all times.
  • Restrooms will be available; face coverings and social distancing will be required.

Fast Pass

Want to get through the lines faster? Fast Passes will be available for purchase for $50 at participating Save Mart and FoodMaxx locations from September 30 through October 18. All sales support the Friends of the Big Fresno Fair, the Fair’s 501 (c)(3) nonprofit Foundation to support overall Fairgrounds operations. Normal business operations have been limited since March due to COVID-19, and the Fair has had minimal revenue to sustain operations of its 165-acre facility; this fundraising effort will help! Fast Pass access is off of Kings Canyon Avenue through a marked entry gate. Don’t miss out on this chance to skip the line!

Drive a Toyota? You Get Complimentary Fast Pass Access!

Yes, you heard us right! Thanks to our presenting sponsor Toyota, if you are in a Toyota vehicle you can enter the Fast Pass lane for free! Just enter the designated Fast Pass gate off of Kings Canyon Avenue.

Donate Blood & Save Money!

Save money on your Fair food and help save lives! Just donate blood at any Central California Blood Center donor center or mobile drive from Monday, September 28 – Saturday, October 3 and you will receive a ticket good for $3 off your Fair food purchase. For details on blood donation and locations, go to www.donateblood.org.

Optional, Free COVID-19 Testing & Flu Vaccinations

The Fair has partnered with the Fresno County Department of Public Health and UCSF Fresno to provide attendees with optional, free onsite COVID-19 testing and flu shots. The public must pre-register for these complimentary services. For more details, including pre-registration, visit our dedicated COVID-19 Testing and Flu Vaccinations page.

Calling all Volunteers!

The Fresno Fairgrounds has had minimal business operations since March due to COVID-19, which has significantly impacted the revenue needed to sustain operations of our 165-acre facility. We are hopeful that this drive-thru food event will be a big success, but we need your help! Sign up to volunteer to be part of our Drive-Thru Eats team today! Questions? Call (559) 650-FAIR.
