The Grounds

The Grounds is a year-round entertainment, convention and commercial venue home to several of the Gulf Coast’s largest events. With more than one million annual attendees to our campus, we are a leader in the area of community development. In 2013, The Grounds, formerly known as the Greater Gulf State Fairgrounds, underwent a major restructuring and rebranding positioning the facility as one of the premiere event and entertainment spaces along the Gulf Coast. Along with the facility’s $300,000 facelift, the Greater Gulf State Fair (GGSF) was also reorganized with an enhanced focus on safety, family fun, and one-of-a-kind attractions for guests of all ages. The activity on The Grounds is not limited to the 10 days of the annual GGSF. We host events of all sizes, year- round. The Grounds has the opportunity to host everything from fellow non-profits and their respective events to concerts, balls, and community service projects. In addition, The Grounds and our board, staff, and volunteers plan and implement numerous events from color runs to various agricultural shows
