There is nothing like getting out in the fresh air and heading to a fun community event. This summer, a known highlight is the famous Sonoma County Fair, which has been going strong for 80 years. This summer, visit any day (except Monday) from July 22 to August 7, and enjoy attractions, exhibits and awesome county fair food.
From pony rides to roller coasters, fair attractions include something for everyone. With designated kiddie and family rides, the younger members of your family will have plenty to do. Get on the Big Splash water ride to beat the summer heat.
Sign up for one of the many talent shows and contests for participants of all ages and skills. From egg hunts and animal imitation contests to community theater, you can find your creative niche. For the more competitive, there are contests in areas such as baked goods, crafting, gardening, photography and more.
Live music is an integral part of the Sonoma County Fair, featuring headlining acts as well as local bands. Arena shows also include traditional county fair entertainment features such as a rodeo, the Destruction Derby and Monster Trucks.
For a slower-paced day, visit the Flower Show or the Livestock Exhibition. Parents and children alike will enjoy the petting zoo and the special farm exhibit where they can learn about farm life with hands-on activities.
The Sonoma County Fair also has plenty of opportunities to explore and practice traditional crafts such as fly tying, rug hooking and mores. Visit Mexican Village to taste Mexican street food and listen to local mariachi music acts.
