Exploring the OC Fair & Event Center
Located on 130 acres in the heart of Orange County, the OC Fair & Event Center boasts 157,000 square feet of event space. In addition to hosting events throughout the year, the OC Fair & Event Center is also home to the Heroes Hall veterans museum and Centennial Farm, which is a three-acre working farm featuring chicks, oxen, pigs, kale and cabbage. The farm was created to educate youth about agriculture and its importance in our daily lives.
Support of the OC Fair helps provide the funds necessary to provide the year-round educational opportunities provided by Centennial Farm, Heroes Hall and the Imaginology program. Imaginology explores science, technology, engineering, art and math with hands-on exhibits and activities designed to inspire and encourage academic and career exploration.
In all, the OC Fair & Event Center hosts 150 events each year, some of which take place in its top-rated Pacific Amphitheatre. The facility also hosts a weekly Farmers Market every Thursday in front of the Pacific Amphitheater Box Office from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm.
With all that the facility has to offer, it should come as no surprise to learn that the OC Fair & Event Center has a significant economic impact on the county and the city of Costa Mess. The facility generates about $300 million in revenue each year while providing the equivalent of 2,500 jobs, which is equal to about $100 million in labor income.
