In 1911, the Turlock Melon Carnival took place for the first time, sponsored by the Turlock Chamber of Commerce. The Turlock Melon Carnival was an effort to promote and market the local melon industry and shipping business.
The Melon Carnival lasted only a few years, and in 1924, the American Legion Rex Ish Post 88 organized a 4th of July celebration for largely the same purpose.
In 1925, the American Legion resurrected the name “Turlock Melon Carnival” for the mid-summer festival.
The 4-H and FFA livestock shows were instituted in 1933, and in 1935, the State of California issued a charter that established the 38th District Agriculture Association (DAA), which remains today.
From a summer weekend in 1911 to a 10-day run, the Stanislaus County Fair has been a source of fun, entertainment and education for people of all ages.
