2700 W Teapot Dome Ave, Porterville, California 93257
“Here’s Cheers to 70 Years,” is the theme for the upcoming Porterville Fair and the community is invited to celebrate this momentous milestone May 9 through May 13, 2018. This year the fair will be celebrating seventy-years and its rich history in the community dating back to 1948. Most community members have fond memories of the fair during its fifty-nine-year run (1959-2010) at its Olive Avenue location. However, the inaugural fair in 1948 was held at Porterville High School. Prior to finding its permanent home, the fair was once again housed at Porterville High School in 1949 and the Rocky Hill Arena in 1950. In 2011, the fair found its new home at 2700 West Teapot Dome Avenue and has been bringing joy to a new generation of families and the community. Porterville is fortunate to have one of the few not-for-profit community fairs that still exist in the state of California. The fair is supported by a large volunteer base including a 12-member board with representation from throughout the surrounding area. For decades the community has banned together each year to celebrate our agricultural roots and encourage children in the community to explore leadership opportunities and life skills through raising, showing and selling livestock.
Don’t miss out on the fun and festivities for our seventy-year celebration. Join the excitement early by purchasing season passes, parking passes, and pay one price (POP) carnival wristbands starting April 4, 2018 at the Porterville Fair Office.
