The 1904 World’s Fair Society has monthly meetings with programs on various topics relating to the Fair.

It has always been a tradition of the organization to have a meeting on April 30th to celebrate “opening day”, (the day the fair opened, April 30th,1904), and to have a “closing day” banquet on December 1st (the day the fair closed, December 1st 1904) .

Most meetings have a drawing for an attendance prize for members attending the meeting. You may register every time you attend a meeting at the reception table near the door.  Attending more meetings will give you more opportunities to win.  Attendance prizes will vary. Often they will match the subject of the meeting.  You must be present to win.

The meetings are always well attended with people very knowledgeable about the fair. Please feel free to attend and ask questions. Visitors are always welcome.
