Miller Lite Starter’s Sports Bar
The Miller Lite Starter’s Sports Bar is exactly where any sports enthusiast wants to pull up a seat to catch their favorite teams playing while still enjoying the fun of the Fair and the excitement of live horse racing! Located just off of the paddock in the Brian I. Tatarian Grandstand, Starter’s is the perfect spot to watch the excitement of live horse racing or catch the big game on the TVs throughout the bar.

Blue Moon Yosemite Station
The Blue Moon Yosemite Station, located between the Commerce and Wells Fargo Agriculture buildings, provides a relaxing and shady hangout for families to sit back and enjoy their Fair food as they listen to and watch a variety of great entertainment. You’ll have everything you need to ease your worries away including misters, fans and TVs. This area features an amazing three dimensional replica of Half Dome that rests above the entrance leading to beautiful murals that depict the marveled waterfalls, granite cliffs, clear streams and beautiful meadows of Yosemite Valley. Feeling thirsty? Pardini’s is pouring the best brew and California wines. You can see why the Blue Moon Yosemite Station is one of the Fair’s most popular hot spots!

Pull up a chair and relax in the Save Mart Beer & Wine Garden. As one of the most popular places on grounds, the Save Mart Beer & Wine Garden features local and regional wines, craft beer and daily live entertainment! In 2014, a new entry was constructed that features a 20-foot tall old mission style archway representing the vibrant grape industry here in the San Joaquin Valley. This spot is a must-see at the 2017 Big Fresno Fair!
