“I would like to thank everyone at Saffire for a very successful launch of our new web site. With the help of all the talented people at Saffire, we completed a very aggressive launch schedule. It was so easy working with everyone in support and design. Everyone was so humble and nice to work with, so we are looking forward in moving our web site into the 21st century. Saffire really has their hand on the pulse of the fair, festival and rodeo industry, which gives us a very innovative and fresh looking web site. Keep up the good work! You make us LOOK GOOD.”

Vice President
Pasco County Fair
Fairs in Dade City date back to 1915 but there hadn't been any for a long time when a group of local businessmen got together in 1947 to start a fair to showcase county resources.The group was led by San Antonio rancher D.E. Cannon, along with agriculture agent Jimmy Higgins and businessmen George Nikolai, Bob Williams and Joe Collura.The group found a perfect location on 40 acres along State Road 52 and raised $3,500 to purchase the site. On April 7, 1947, the Pasco County Fair Association Inc. was chartered with the purpose of hosting and annual fair to promote youth and other county resources. The first documented county fair was Jan. 20 through 24, 1948. The Fair Association has remained an independent, non-profit organization since its founding. The Association relies mostly on generous local community sponsorships, along with fair memberships, revenue from our guests, and rental income from the buildings housed on the fairgrounds. The Pasco County Fair Association, Inc. is currently 1538 members strong.
