The Maricopa County Fair kicks off this Wednesday, April 6th and runs through Sunday, April 10th.

There’s a lot to do at the Maricopa County Fair.

Visitors can see animals on display, watch local and national performers, go on pony rides, interact with farm animals in a petting zoo, go on children’s or thrill rides, play carnival games and see displays of community members’ talents.

Put on by the Maricopa County Fair Association Inc., the fair is returning April 6-10 after being canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

The event started in the 1950s as a fair and citrus festival. Executive Director Karen Searle has been managing the fair since 2004. She had owned a racing pig company, traveled around with her husband performing as a professional clown and did management services for fairs before this.
