The Youth Fair, now in its 64th year, is ranked the largest fair in Florida and one of the top 35 fairs throughout North America. It attracts nearly 600,000 guests of all ages every year. This is a family experience packed with adrenaline-pumping rides, fun games, mouth-watering food stands, live outdoor concerts, sensational shows, livestock/agricultural competitions, and over 40,000 local artistic, academic and agricultural student exhibits. For the first time ever, the Youth Fair will be open 21 days instead of 18 days.
Miami-Dade County Fair & Exposition, Inc. is a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching our community by promoting education and South Florida agriculture, while showcasing and rewarding youth achievement. We accomplish this by producing our first-class annual Youth Fair with quality entertainment, and providing facilities and resources for numerous other events throughout the year. The Youth Fair works closely with Miami-Dade County Public Schools and the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department to bring fresh opportunities to children from pre-kindergarten to high school seniors. The result is year-round programs in academics, the fine arts, agriculture, summer camps and sports.
The Youth Fair runs from March 12 – April 5, 2015, except March 16-17 and 30-31 at Tamiami Park which has been its home for 43 years, located at Coral Way (SW 24th Street) & SW 107th Avenue. Gates open at 3:00 p.m. March 12, 13, 18, 19, April 1 & 2. Gates open at 12 noon all other operating days.
