"Fairs in Dade City date back to 1915 but there hadn't been any for a long time when a group of local businessmen got together in 1947 to start a fair to showcase county resources.The group was led by San Antonio rancher D.E. Cannon, along with agriculture agent Jimmy Higgins and businessmen George Nikolai, Bob Williams and Joe Collura.The group found a perfect location on 40 acres along State Road 52 and raised $3,500 to purchase the site. On April 7, 1947, the Pasco County Fair Association Inc. was chartered with the purpose of hosting and annual fair to promote youth and other county resources. The first documented county fair was Jan. 20 through 24, 1948. The Fair Association has remained an independent, non-profit organization since it's founding. The Association relies mostly on generous local community sponsorships, along with fair memberships, revenue from our guests, and rental income from the buildings housed on the fairgrounds. The Pasco County Fair Association, Inc. is currently 1538 members strong."

You do NOT want to miss the Mow-Town Lawn Mower Races on Monday either! Lawnmower racing is a form of motorsport in which competitors race modified lawnmowers usually of the ride0on self-propelled variety. The original mower engines are retained, but the blades are removed for safety. The sport attracts all ages and is usually entered into in a spirit of fun rather than extreme competitiveness, though many participants do take it seriously. Don't Miss The 1st Ever Mow-Town Lawn Mower Races sponsored by Absolute Air Systems, Inc. and Fraley Trucking on Monday, Feb. 20th at 7 pm! Ages 12 and up are welcome.
The Pasco County Fairgrounds is located at 36722 State Road 52 Dade City, Florida 33525.
