Photo Gallery: Midwinter Fair 1894
The Midwinter Fair of 1894 was held in Golden Gate Park and centered around today's Music Concourse. It ran from January 27 to July 9, 1894. Most of the fair buildings, except for the Fine Arts Building which later became the de Young Museum, were demolished. Some buildings and many of the rides were purchased by Adolph Sutro and moved to other areas on the west side.
