For The Community


The Youth Fair works closely with the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department to ensure students are given the opportunity to compete year-round in sports that often aren't a part of their school's athletic program.

The result is a yearlong program of invitational sports events open to middle and high school students participating in:

  • Badminton
  • Bowling
  • Cross country
  • Golf
  • Swimming and diving
  • Tennis
  • Track
  • Wrestling

More than 6,000 public and private school students participate annually in the various sporting events sponsored by The Youth Fair.

All athletic events sponsored by The Miami-Dade County Youth Fair & Exposition are held in accordance with the official rules of the National Federation of State High School Association, Florida High School Activities Association and the Greater Miami Athletic Conference (GMAC).
