The Gran Fondo Guide-Cycling Italian Style continues to expand with event schedules, event results, and gran fondo stories from around the world.
Where to find it:
A word about gran fondos in general: In Italy these are competitive, timed, events with some level of course management (ranging from full road closures to blocking vehicles at intersections). You should be aware that there has been a lot of drift in the meaning and use of "gran fondo" outside of Italy. The gran fondo you ride might not resemble the Italian experience.
The organizers of the Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York in "What is a Gran Fondo?" write about it.
