Porterville California FAir Annual Event


Porterville California Fair is held every year in May. It runs for approx. 5 days and features a carnival, livestock shows and contests, games, food galore, and a whole lot more.


Porterville, California is located in Tulare County, California. This largely farming region produces livestock, vegetables, fruits and a bounty of foods. Thatt's why the Porterville Fair is one of the best examples of a California fair event from the perspective of the state's true roots in the farming industry. While many of the regional and country fairs have become entertainment venues in which animals are shipped in from other regions, this fair offers the true spirit of competition, farm life, and all the good things that go with it.
