Are you looking for actual races? Or just organized events (aka: centuries)?
If races, any National Calendar races will be very popular and quite the Event. But these are limited by maximum field size limits. I don't think I've ever heard of any races with a max field size greater than 200. Criteriums are usually smaller than that.
If centuries, we can provide an extensive list of centuries with 1000s of riders.

We have a few "Gran Fondos" in the US, but we have many many more of "rallies" or "charity benefit" rides.
Here's a calendar for Minnesota:

Try the green mountain stage race. There is a Citizens (Gran fondo) race.

El Tour de Tucson (http://www1.perimeterbicycling.com/el-tour-de-tucson/): 9,000 riders; chip timed; as fast as you want it to be; and you 'get' to carry your bike through a couple of washes. ;-)
