The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair opens Thursday with 18 days of family fun at Tamiami Park, where we’ve held the fair for the past 42 years. We anticipate more than 600,000 visitors will enjoy our exciting lineup of wholesome entertainment, student exhibits, animals, food and rides.
The Youth Fair is a charity that exists for the children in our community. Last year more than 27,000 schoolchildren showcased their work in tens of thousands of exhibits that ranged from art and agriculture to robots, creative writing, fashion, drama and music. The Fair has raised more than $10 million in scholarships and prizes for students in its 63-year history.
I want to thank Miami-Dade County being a good partner as the landlord of the fairgrounds at Tamiami Park. We have a long history and proud tradition with Miami-Dade County Public Schools, and we’re proud of our corporate relationships. We welcome everyone to join the fun and make their traditions while supporting students.
