Pasco County Fair
36722 State Road 52, Dade City, Florida
Last full week in February
Founded in 1948
In 1947, the Pasco County Fair Association was incorporated by local businessmen, and 40 acres of property was purchased along State Road 52 near Dade City for the purpose of holding an annual fair to promote youth activities and other county resources. The first Pasco County Fair was held in January of 1948.

The fair lasts for a full week, beginning on Monday and ending on the last full weekend in February. Highlights include a large midway area with rides, live musical entertainment, specialty shows and acts, talent and art shows, youth exhibits, and a rodeo. Exhibitions and judging for a variety of different livestock animals is also a large part of the fair.

In addition to the traditional midway rides and animal displays, the Pasco County Fair offers a variety of concerts on some days and evenings. The lineup of musical talent changes each year, so be sure to check the daily schedules posted on their website (see below). Of course you can't have a fair without food vendors ... and the fair always has a good variety for those who love fair food.
