Maricopa County Fair – 2013

Maricopa County Fair is one of the most anticipated events in Phoenix, Arizona. It is a nonprofit organization with a mission which is to provide an entertainment venue to Maricopa County residents of all ages to join in competitive activities with emphasis on education and agriculture, and also to provide temporary funding for an animal project to a deserving exhibitor who doesn’t have financial means to participate in a beef project.

Maricopa County Fair was first done in 1934 until 1954. It was reopened in 1975 and it became stronger until the present. This year’s Maricopa County fair will be packed with incredible FREE family entertainment, including a man climbing inside a balloon, motocross daredevils, livestock shows, juggling, magic, arts and craft exhibits, variety of fair food, and live music. There will also be great shopping opportunities, scrumptious fair food, as well as carnival rides for all levels of thrill seekers. Farm Tours, farm equipment, Four C’s, farm tours and Kiddie Koral will surely delight the younger ones.

The fair will serve as an excellent trade fair, providing a significant platform for distributors, traders, poultry farmers, suppliers, and animal husbandry department to be informed about the latest updates with the recent technologies in the sector. It will also discuss about improving the business strategies and provides direct interaction between the exhibitors and the attendees.
