The fair has been operated by the same non-profit, private corporation since the 1970's: The Southwestern Fair Commission, Inc. The Commission and Pima County put all profits earned from fair operations back into the facility for improvement. Over the years, the Commission has made over $2 million of improvements to the facilities.
