Own a piece of Fair history!

The artwork will be auctioned off on Saturday, August 10 at Wine Country Hat Day. Need not be present to bid. Artwork is called “Down the Backside” created by Tom Chapman. This oil painting is a piece of Fair History. Tom painted this when the Turf Track first opened up. Donated by the Sonoma County Fair Board of Directors.

To bid on a piece of fair history contact Lorna at (707)545-4200 or secretary@sonomacountyfair.com before Saturday at Noon.

Here’s your chance to win at the track without even placing a bet! Look for the Win/Place/Show table as you enter the grandstands, fill out a slip, and put it in the numbered box that matches the horse you think will win that day’s 7th race. You might end up in the Winner’s Circle to claim a cash prize! (Must be present to collect.)
