Continued Success at the Fresno County Fairgrounds

The Big Fresno Fair

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 Fresno County.

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 and attics. 

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.
