Visited the Pima County Fair this year for the first time in many years. Pretty much the same "fair atmosphere" that was always there. Enjoyed the booths in the buildings - skipped the rides, but the grandkids rode many of them. The place was packed even for a week day evening. Skip the food - eat before you go! Did... More

Our daughter is a singer/songwriter and has had many shows at various county/state fairs. We were so impressed by the incredible cleanliness, paved walkways and the staff that we met there. After her shows we walked around as "fair goers" to experience the whole thing. We LOVED it. We talked with many people after her shows and they all had... More

I always like going to the fair. However, I am not there for the rides unless my grandson is with me. What I enjoy most are the animals that people raise and train. There are also concerts given with the price of admission that is a great value. Be sure not to miss the steam engine section when they are... More

We have been coming to the fairgrounds for almost a decade. Each winter we come here for at least a week because the weekly fee for full hookups is only $100.00. But there is a reason for the cheap rate most of the electric is 30 amps and campers have had problems with faulty sockets. They are in the process... More

The Pima County Fair is a great place for the family. They had a rodeo, which was a great free and exciting experience until the announcer said during the bull riding "I wonder if we could put that rope around Obama's neck to get him out of office". I thought that was real tacky especially when there were tons of... More

No mention of the fact that this venue has a nice gun range, it's probably politically incorrect to post huh? Only $8 for a lane and they have plenty so you rarely wait. Rangers are friendly and experienced. Saw people shooting pistols, rifles, shotguns, slingshots and bow.

Came into Tucson from the SF Bay Area and wanted to experience a real "county fair". It was really fun and colorful. Nice exhibits, huge midway with an outrageous number of food stands. The livestock barns were really interesting. Great entertainment that was free, Easton Corbin. You usually have to pay extra for those shows.... Good value

Nice, small-ish county fair with food, vendors and rides. We went on $2 ride day and had a blast going on as many rides as we cared for about $20. The exhibit halls seemed a bit sparse (as well as the livestock exhibits), but there was plenty to see in the 8 hours we spent wandering around. I finally tried... More

Nice county fair, but could always use a little change maybe. Be careful of the lemonade though, my friend got very sick from it this year... :(

We love the fair. It makes us think of being kids again. Our two children (6 & 8) love it too. We try to remember to buy the discount rides tickets at fry's before we go as these are perfect for kids the age of ours. For the older riders, buy there. The shows and games are reasonable as well,... More
