In 1910, a group of civic-minded San Bernardino businessmen invented the inaugural National Orange Show to encourage the culture of citrus fruits and promote the distribution of the “exotic crop” throughout the world. That initial tiny citrus fair was carried from March 6th through March 11th, 1911. Exhibits collected two canvas shelters in a vacant lot at 4th & E street. The two tents spread about 8000 square feet. Rain fell continuously throughout the five-day exhibition, but that didn’t seem to have an impact. More than 3000 people visited that year. In the later years, it began to be called “California’s Greatest Midwinter Event.” A complete site was established at mill & E street. One of the most complete and finest exposition buildings in the nation opened in 1925. In its heyday, the National Orange Show drew over 300,000 visitors each year. In 1949, the Exhibit Building was destroyed by fire. But then, later on, many other significant buildings and a stadium were added in the following years. Although it has limited to the citrus industry anymore, the National Orange Show continues to be held annually.
