Panama California International Exposition

<= Panama Pacific International Exposition

CA Pacific International Exposition =>

San Francisco was not the only California city to celebrate the Panama Canal with a world's fair. To the south, San Diego held the Panama California International Exposition (1915-1916) in Balboa Park. The fair promoted the city as the first U.S. port of call north of the canal. Unlike San Francisco, where almost all of the exposition structures were demolished after the close, the Spanish Colonial buildings designed by architect Bertram Goodhue remained to form the basis for San Diego's next major fair two decades later.
