Meet Our Partners
The Florida State Fairgrounds annually hosts more than 300 events, concerts, equestrian shows and exhibitions as one of Central Florida’s premier event and entertainment venues.
The Fairgrounds has approximately 1.5 million visitors each year, with more than 450,000 of those visitors attending the annual Florida State Fair. According to the Center for Economic Development at the University of South Florida, the annual economic impact of the Fairgrounds is greater than that of the Outback Bowl and Gasparilla combined.
The Fairgrounds is committed to using its success as a way to give back to its community. $1.5 million of its annual operating budget supports activities that promote agriculture and education. Each year, the Florida State Fair Authority (FSFA) awards $400,000 in scholarships, premiums, grants, savings bonds and cash to deserving students.
Although the FSFA is an instrumentality of the state of Florida, it does not receive any annual tax appropriations from the City of Tampa, Hillsborough County or the State of Florida. Fair partners are a vital part of how the Florida State Fairgrounds and its mission have been supported throughout the years.
