6. Junior Livestock Auction Agriculture is the heart of the Sonoma County Fair, and their Junior Livestock Auction is one of the largest in the state. Auction time is the culmination of a year of hard work and dedication for 4-H, FFA and independent junior exhibitors, and only the best animals meet Junior Livestock Auction standards. This year’s sale dates and times are Sunday, July 29 at 9:00 am for swine and rabbits; Friday, August 3 at 9:00 am for sheep, goats and poultry; and Saturday, August 4 at 6:30 pm for beef.
7. Free Fun for the Kids Another new adventure is the 3D Creature Feature Experience. This thrilling exhibit will put you up close and personal with exotic animals from around the world. Touch and learn about lizards, snakes, amphibians and bugs; there is even a chance to watch baby snakes hatch. Another great attraction is Bubba’s Beach. You will be amazed at what can be sculpted out of sand! The beach is at the entrance of the racing grandstands where you will find a giant sand sculpture. On the very next beach, Fairgoers will have the chance to participate in a do-it-yourself sand sculpting activity. The whole family will also love Nancy Riegler and her astounding Bird Show in Community Theater, starring the most talented tropical birds ever–on land or sea! The Fair is full of activities and features designed for kids 10 and under. Don’t miss the Pirates on the Russian River, sword fighting, magicians and the Great American Petting Zoo.
8. Community Exhibits The Sonoma County Fair is grateful for the huge number of folks that have made exhibiting at the Fair an annual tradition. There are several exhibit buildings on the Fairgrounds, so make sure you visit them all. You’ll find exhibits in categories like Fine Arts & Photography, Home Arts, Baked Goods and many more. This summer, the Fair introduces a new activity for Fairgoers, the “Inspiration Station – Learn, Listen & Do Series”. At these stations, located in the various exhibit halls, a skilled presenter will help participants with do-it-yourself projects to take home. Most classes last about 45 minutes, and options include glass blowing, candle making, scrapbooking and many others.Page: < Prev 1 2 3 4 Next > [View as single page]
