Santa Clara County Fair History

The fairgrounds were purchased in 1943, the first Santa Clara County Fair took place in 1944, and San Jose was considered “in the country.” In the past, the Fair schedule was a two-week long experience with a packed schedule. At one point, it was the third largest in California. In this same time-frame, the Valley of the Heart’s Delight morphed into the Silicon Valley, with an incredible population explosion.
