Our mission, from our inception, as it remains today, is to honor and remember the past accomplishments of our Fresno County athletes, to annually celebrate the enshrinement of our new inductees and to provide inspiration to our youth so they too can become all they can be in their lives.
Two years ago, the Fresno
County Athletic Hall of Fame was approached by the Big Fresno Fair about
becoming a partner in an exciting new project at the Fairgrounds. The Fair
Board had seen the need for a museum to display the rich heritage of Fresno
County for future generations. The new Fresno County Historical Museum was
recently completed and our Board eagerly accepted the challenge of creating a
display that would tell our story and bring the rich legacy of athletics alive
The first step of the process was to reach out too our past
inductees for memorabilia to illustrate our legacy for visitors to the
fairgrounds. The response was overwhelming. Our past inductees graciously
provided amazing memorabilia that had far too long been packed away in garages
The success of this project certainly underscores the importance of
a permanent home for the Fresno County Athletic Hall of Fame in our community.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their ongoing support of our efforts to
make a positive difference in our community.
