Porterville Fair in Tulare County since 1948 is one of the last true community fairs in California.
From it's modest beginnings at Porterville High School, the Fair has been at it's present location since 1951 and has steadily grown and expanded with the surrounding communities. The original 3 member Board of Directors has progressed to a 16 member working Board representing farming, ranching, educators, and business leaders from a service area encompassing Lindsay to Ducor and Poplar to Springville.
The annual Fair in May provides over 2000 4-H and FFA junior exhibitors the opportunity to show off their wares ranging from cakes to cattle and rockets to rabbits. Always a highlight, the Livestock Auction on Saturday of the Fair has generated approximately 7.5 million dollars to the youth of our community since 1980 alone. Buyers at the Auction represent every facet of the community, and their generosity over the years have helped untold thousands of youngsters experience the rewards of hard work and dedication fostered by the 4-H and FFA programs. The fair currently brings in an annual attendance of 55,000.
