Southwest Florida and Lee County Fair 2023 Dates!

 February 23 - March 5!

The days are ticking down one by one. As of today we only have 218 days to go before the 2023 Southwest Florida and Lee County Fair returns!

Our Fair Manager and grounds crew work hard year round to make sure the Civic Center property is always in its best shape and ready to host the Biggest Event in Southwest Florida each and every year.

We would like to give a big shout out to Al Curry and Sweet Cypress Rance for all the work they have done in helping to make the new horse arena possible. We cannot wait to be able to host more equine events now with this new part added to our facility.


For the next couple weeks, we want to celebrate the winners of the fair with our 4-H/FFA groups, our creative living, and other competitions that we had during the fair. We are so proud of all of the accomplishments and fun that were had during the fair, and cannot wait until next year for even more fun.

Today, we are highlighting our Beef Breeding winners. Congratulations to each of these students for their hard work and dedication.


For those wondering about the candid photos from the 4-H events, the site is up, and we are getting those pictures up there for you to view and download. Here is the link, and you will click on the "4-H Event Photos" link to take you there. Thank you for your patience as we have gotten all of this together, and organized for you to enjoy.


We love our farmers! They work hard so we can have food on our tables! Our 4-H clubs and FFA Clubs teach our kids how hard work pays off and how it takes hard work and sacrifice to keep food on our tables.

Thank a farmer if you ate dinner tonight!








 They say time flies when you are having fun, we are down to less than 290 days until the 2023 fair kicks off. It feels like almost yesterday we closed the gates on a great 2022 Fair. We will be back with the best Fair Florida has to offer! Make sure to mark your calendars and set your reminders so that you wont miss a minute of the action!
