Eleven great nights of entertainment, food, rides and fun for the whole family.
Since its inception in 1935, the Pensacola Interstate Fair has opened its doors to the public every October to bring some magic and fun to the Pensacola community. From a small tent with limited livestock to a highly anticipated event every year, the Frenkel’s family history and passion for this town are closely intertwined with this event.
The Fair officially began with John E. Frenkel, Sr., his wife Lillian and 30 Fair members. Over the years, the Pensacola Interstate Fair has become one of the finest and largest fairs in the United States with a staff of eight and more than 400 volunteers. Many volunteers belong to local clubs and serve to showcase a wonderful array of exhibits.
There is nothing like a fair. It brings to Pensacola a stimulating, satisfying, stirring, sparkling celebration of education, information and fun entertainment. The Pensacola Interstate Fair receives praise locally and throughout the country and recently has been selected as one of Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events for the month of October. The best events across the Southeast compete to receive the prestigious Top 20 designation. We are eminently proud to be a part of the economy and growth of Pensacola year after year…and proud to say, “The Fair is good for Pensacola.”
