From Wagon Wheels to Ferris Wheels! The entertainment is better than ever at The 2022 Hillsborough County Fair

11 days of consistent fun from Nov. 3rd through Nov. 13th

TAMPA, Starting Nov. 3rd - Fall is the perfect time in Florida to enjoy the outdoors, and what better way than to visit the 2022 Hillsborough County Fair. The theme of this year’s Fair, “Homegrown fun,” is just a glimmer of all the Fair has to offer, from an expanded carnival with spectacular midway rides and new kiddie rides, to free entertainment for high-speed thrill-seekers and motor enthusiasts, a cattle women’s beef cook-off, beauty pageants for all ages, and lots of discounts for the entire family.

The Fair will run for 11 full days, offering more time to enjoy the rides, food, and exhibits at the Hillsborough County Fairgrounds in Dover, just east of Brandon, from November 3 – 13. 

Along with free parking throughout the Fair, there are several new entertainment events that are free.

Here’s what’s new this year and free:

The Camel Kingdom Show features camel rides, parades, and petting zoos. 

Disc-Connected K-9 Show choreographed to music and comprised of the best professional Frisbee-catching dogs on the planet.

Educational Firefighter show, a firefighting experience for children and adults to learn how to prevent, tame, and properly create fire. 

Special arena events for pet and motorsport enthusiasts:

Bulls, Broncos, and Barrel Racing Rodeo for budding cowboys held on Friday and Saturday, November 4th and 5th. 

Demolition Derby for motor enthusiasts who enjoy watching drivers of cars, mini-vans, and station wagons deliberately ram into each other, makes its return to the Fair on Sunday, November 13th. 

Truck and Tractor Pull on November 11th & 12th where you can watch antique tractors, hot rods and the BIG BOY trucks and tractors come out to compete in our dirt arena!

Cowboy Camp for children of all ages to participate in an interactive cowboy experience and enjoy some fun from yesteryear.
