Florida State Fair 2014

The theme for this year's Florida State Fair is "1st Place for Fun" and the fair runs from February 6th through February 17th. This 110th Florida State Fair is the first state fair of the year in the country.  The old favorites are back - learn about Florida history in "Cracker Country", watch the livestock shows and horse shows, and get new craft ideas at the Arts and Crafts Showcase. In addition, there are many free special attractions and daily shows, including:
  • Florida Cattlemen’s Exhibit
  • Florida's Learning Garden
  • Concerts and Entertainment
  • Mounted Police Training and Demo
  • NockAir FMX Flying Motorcycle Extreme Show
By clicking on a particular day in the events calendar, you can see a list of fair events for that day.  Although some concert events require an additional charge for tickets, there are over 110 free things to do at the fair. The gates open at 9 am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and at 10 am the rest of the week. The admission cost is lower for Seniors on "Senior Days" (see below).

Senior Days
February 10th-13th
55+ Gate Admission $9.00
Advance Tickets $7.00
