In addition to the traditional experiences, one can find at the fair, the Pima County Fair will often add an educational or socially relevant exhibit to the fair exhibits.
The Pima County Fair remembers the suffering of others and humbly offers an opportunity pay respect and express gratitude to Arizona’s Fallen heroes through a photographic war memorial created to remember our country’s military fallen. 
The exhibit includes both military and personal photos of Arizona’s Fallen and reminds us that our freedom comes at great expense. The legacy of the exhibit is that our men and women will be remembered and their names will be spoken in the hopes of lessening the grief of those left behind.
Remembering Our Fallen – Arizona is on display in the Old Pueblo Conference and Event Center, the duration of the fair.
