Panama–Pacific International Exposition

Feb 20, 1915 - Dec 4, 1915

The Panama–Pacific International Exposition was a world's fair held in San Francisco, California, U.S., from February 20 to December 4, 1915. Its stated purpose was to celebrate the completion of the Panama Canal, but it was widely seen in the city as an opportunity to showcase its recovery from the 1906 earthquake. The fair was constructed on a 635 acre site along the northern shore, between the Presidio and Fort Mason, now known as the Marina District.
