Why would the City of Jacksonville sell this land to Iguana Investments?
A common misconception is that the Jacksonville Fairgrounds is owned and operated by the City of Jacksonville. Actually, the Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair Association is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit that has owned and operated the land independently for decades.
So Iguana Investments isn’t purchasing the land from the City of Jacksonville. They’re purchasing the land directly from the Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair Association.
How will the move impact the events at the Fairgrounds and the annual Jacksonville Fair?
This move is being made because of the benefits it brings. We expect the events we hold and the Jacksonville Fair experience to only improve with the move. State of the art facilities, a better layout, more space, etc. We have big plans for the future of the fair and want to provide all who attend an even better experience.
