It’s that time of year again! The Maricopa County Fair is coming to the AZ Exposition & State Fairgrounds on April 12 to April 16, 2023. Be prepared for 5 days of food, rides and fun!
The Maricopa County Fair is the largest in the greater Phoenix area with 35 rides. There are rides the thrill seekers will love, rides for the little ones and rides for everyone in between. There is pure family fun for attendees of all ages.
I don’t know about you, but I love to eat at the fair. I start off slowly with the melting goodness of cotton candy, a corn dog, soft drink and maybe some popcorn. Then I graduate to food I’ve never even heard of before. If you go to the Maricopa County Fair, don’t leave without trying Flaming Hot Turkey Legs, Deep Fried Coffee and the Mac Doggie Dog.
The Fair will have live entertainment on three different stages. The Main Stage will give you a sampling of the best entertainment in the county. Bands, dance groups, singers, even martial arts groups will be performing there. Hypnotist Extraordinaire Suzy Haner will be showing off her amazing skills on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Don’t miss her act – she’ll be who everybody will be talking about on Monday morning.
The County Fair Stage hosts the traditional County Fair Games. Come, compete and win ribbons!
The Community Stage gives budding performers a chance to get their start. See bands, belly dancers, jugglers and more as you support local talent.
And if that’s not enough entertainment for you, then don’t miss George Johnson, performing at the Country Fair Stage.
Do you find sharks interesting? Are you a fan of Shark Week? Make sure to catch the Live Shark Encounter! All day long, live sharks will be on display. And three times a day, you can watch a show that’s both educational and fun.
See the most fun anyone can have on four wheels when the MonsterTrucks roll into the fairgrounds on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Be amazed as these massive trucks go flying through the air performing mind boggling stunts.
And if that still isn’t enough, you can watch Demo Cross daredevils speed in an unbelievable race where anything goes!
Agriculture and livestock have been a part of the Maricopa County Fair’s history and tradition. See livestock shows where cattle, swine, goats, sheep, rabbits, poultry and more are shown and judged.
Maricopa County Fair’s Shopping Pavilion will be filled with more than 60 vendors. Another 25 vendors will be outside the Pavilion. A shopaholic’s dream!
And if all that isn’t enough to tempt you, just remember – Maricopa County will never look as lovely as it looks when you see it from the top of a ferris wheel.
