Nestled in scenic Orange County, about an hour south of Los Angeles, the city of Costa Mesa is home to the sprawling 150 acres OC Fair and Event Center. Hosting over 150 events and over 4 million visitors per year, this venue also holds the honor of being the home of the first County Fair of Santa Ana in 1890. Withstanding the test of time, the OC Fair and Event Center is widely known for hosting the annual summer 23-day OC Fair. However, not to be classified as simply a fairground, over the years it has also hosted notable people such as the former President Barack Obama on his visit to Southern California as well as many local community events and activities.
