The Annual John Picano, Jr. Memorial Golf Tournament benefitting the South Florida Fair Scholarship Fund will be played at Mayacoo Lakes Country Club, Friday, May 8, 2020 loaded with unequaled golf, gifts, prizes, food and fun!

John Picano, Jr., Public Relations Director for the South Florida Fair, who was a loved and respected leader in our community, passed away on November 22, 2012. John was an avid golfer and was instrumental in the growth and success of the Fair’s golf tournament. John’s memory lives on through the annual South Florida Fair’s Memorial Golf Tournament which provides scholarships to area students who might not otherwise be able to attend College.

Since 1981, the South Florida Fair Scholarship Golf Classic has raised over $500,000 in college scholarships for local youth and on 2020, $45,000 in scholarships will be awarded.

The outing includes:
• Souvenir gifts for all participants including 2 admission tickets to the South Florida Fair
• Golf Shirt or Shoes
• On course contests

Thank you to all who made the 2019 Tournament successful. We collected $40,514.44 towards Scholarships!

The South Florida Fair & Palm Beach County Expositions strives to make a difference in Palm Beach County, Fl.

Although the South Florida Fair event is held annually in January, we are active year-round and dedicate our efforts to providing educational programs for area youth. Annually, the Fair awards $45,000 in educational and trade scholarships. Each Spring and Summer, the Fair hosts Agricultural Camps and school tours in our historic Yesteryear Village. These are just a few examples of how the Fair gives back to our community.

Just as with any other non-profit organization, we would not be able to offer these types of programs without the support of our others committed to youth.


During the annual South Florida Fair, we host a “Party” celebration featuring an amazing silent auction.
