Who we are

Over a 10-day period beginning the final week of October beginning of November, 100,000 patrons from Mobile and the surrounding Gulf Coast walk through the doors of the Greater Gulf State Fair (GGSF). After being founded in 1955 by the Mobile Jaycees (Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rode, Azalea Trailmaids, The Grounds), GGSF has played generational host to some of the best entertainment in the Gulf States including Josh Turner, The Marshall Tucker Band, Tim McGraw, Alabama, and LANCO.


The Greater Gulf State Fair is the ideal platform to reach more than 100,000 potential customers in only 10 days. GGSF’s ever-growing and loyal fan base is what makes this exhibition the “must-stop” destination for our partners. The 2020 fair will run Friday, October 30 through Sunday, November 8. Our mission is to know exactly what would be most beneficial to your company and to find an opportunity that best accomplishes that goal. Having an idea of what your company’s objectives are will help us to get started.
