Here We Are Now, Entertain Us
Imagine, the first Arizona Territorial Fair was held over 130 years ago in 1884. Even the current site, established in 1905, spans more than a century. Look around, and you’ll see how the state has changed while remaining very much the same. First and foremost, this is Arizona’s fair, where every member of this diverse state comes together to have fun and make memories. The Coliseum’s lineup reflects this. Elvis, The Doors, President Obama and Pope John Paul II have all appeared on its stage. This year’s eagerly awaited roster of headliners will again demonstrate the wide range of artistic talent and personal achievement from the USA and across the globe. The Arizona State Fair populates its daily menu of magic shows, Vintage American exhibits and Grandstand Racing. Free with admission, these exceptional events may not be the primary reason you inked the Arizona State Fair into your calendar, but they’ll add to the memories you’ll cherish and serve as a reminder to why you and so many others return year, after year, after year.
