As you may know, the financial state of California’s small fairs is very questionable. Like most small fairs, the Desert Empire Fair depends on the local community to assist them in maintaining operations of the fairgrounds. All major credit cards accepted. Your payment is secure.



In 1971, We sold hundreds of lifetime memberships to construct our first permanent fairgrounds building. Due to the loss of state funding in 2015, we're bringing lifetime memberships back! Be a part of local history!

Lifetime Membership: $300

Lifetime membership grants you free admission to the fair ad perpetuam.

Create more visibility for your business or organization!

The Desert Empire Fair welcomes more visitors to our events each year than any other community venue! Be a part of our regional marketing on radio, TV, newspapers and in social media!

We hope you will consider sponsoring an event (or more!) at the Desert Empire Fair, a community resource since 1950.
