This is a list of world's fairs, a comprehensive chronological list of world's fairs (with notable permanent buildings built). For an annotated list of all world's fairs sanctioned by the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) see List of world expositions.

As an aside, the oldest North American expo calling itself a World's Fair is actually the World's Fair of Tunbridge, Vermont, which is held yearly.[1] It assumed the title of "world's fair" in 1867. However, it is not a "world's fair" in the same expansive sense as the following entries of this page.

1790s[edit]

  • 1791 - Habsburg Monarchy First industrial exhibition in Prague, Klementinum, in 1791 - considerable sophistication of manufacturing methods.[2]
  • 1798 - France Paris, France - L'Exposition publique des produits de l'industrie française, Paris, 1798.[3][dead link] This was the first public industrial exposition in France although earlier in 1798 the Marquis d'Avèze had held a private exposition of handicrafts and manufactured goods at the Maison d'Orsay in the Rue de Varennes and it was this that suggested the idea of a public exposition to François de Neufchâteau, Minister of the Interior for the French Republic.[4]

1800s[edit]

  • 1801 - France Paris, France - Second Exposition (1801). After the success of the exposition of 1798 a series of expositions for French manufacturing followed (1801, 1802, 1806, 1819, 1823, 1827, 1834, 1844 and 1849) until the first properly international (or universal) exposition in France in 1855.[5]
  • 1802 - France Paris, France - Third Exposition (1802)[5]
  • 1806 - France Paris, France - Fourth Exposition (1806)[5]
