2024 Fair Theme: Dive Into The Fun

JANUARY 12 - 28, 2024

All-new and different activities and experiences each year! Since 1993, the themed expositions produced every year during the South Florida Fair are one of the most popular attractions of the 17-day event.
Join us in January as we DIVE INTO THE FUN and celebrate ocean and marine wildlife! See a live shark show, get up-close with sea lions, walk-through an immersive underwater experience and interact with local organizations that educate our community on how to keep the oceans healthy, clean and thriving!


Ahoy Matey! Be on the lookout for Mr. Adler, an experienced paleontologist who loves to take his babies for a stroll around the Fair! Your children will love to meet his baby sea animals!


View these wonderful Sea Lions during the South Florida Fair! Presentations will be held throughout the day involving education and comedy.

Come witness their natural behaviors, as well as when they are encouraged!

You will be amazed as they shoot hoops, balance balls, dance, perform handstands, and show their pretty smiles.
