In 1935, the late Eugene Dean and the late Jack Flynn teamed up in the amusement park
business (Dean & Flynn) in Salisbury Beach, Massachusetts. They combined their talents
and business acumen to create wholesome family entertainment with emphasis on quality and
the importance of fair play.
In 1950, the two showmen signed a contract to provide the carnival midway at the historic
Topsfield Fair. Today, over 50 years later, Fiesta Shows continues as the exclusive
carnival partner at the nation's oldest fair - entertaining over 500,000 patrons annually.
As the demand for wholesome family entertainment grew, so did Dean & Flynn.
In 1967, Dean & Flynn purchased Fiesta Shows. Over the past few decades, Fiesta Shows
has enjoyed remarkable growth and has become an annual tradition in scores of New England
communities. Today, Fiesta Shows is the largest New England-based carnival in the
business, and certainly, one of the biggest in the entire Northeast. Fiesta Shows now owns
over eighty amusement rides, from the traditional Merry-Go-Round and Tilt-A-Whirl to the
unique Pole Position Spinning Coaster and exciting Freak Out.
Fiesta Shows is committed to creating safe and wholesome family entertainment for all of
its patrons. We do this by offering the public the cleanest, safest, and most modern rides
available. With a retention rate well over 90%, our ride operators are seasoned and
Fiesta Shows' distinguished history in the gaming business allows us to set a standard
that all our game concessionaires must follow. We believe the happiest customers are the
winning customers and the winners will generate more players.
Food operators are also closely monitored. In addition to local independent
health inspections each week, we make sure food concessions are staffed with courteous
operators who serve only quality carnival foods at fair prices.
Fiesta Shows also takes the responsibility to our sponsors, organizations, and committees
very seriously. We work diligently to uphold every detail of our contracts and agreements
with sponsoring organizations. The fact that we continue to enjoy repeat dates speaks for
