Fairtime Contests & Special Events

Sonoma County Fair

This is your chance to take center stage. Blow a giant bubblegum bubble, build a LEGO creation, demonstrate your loudest scream, whistle a tune, make a milk moustache or show the world how much you and your mother look alike. Kids and adults are invited to join in Fun & Games every day at Jurassic Adventure Zone. Every day will be different, but it will always be fun! There are free contests every day of the Fair and everyone who enters gets a ribbon. Any fairgoer old enough to stand on stage is welcome in most contests. Check the contest description for age requirements, and details on each contest. The times listed below may change. So, stop by any Information Booth and get a copy of the day's schedule when you get to the Fair

2023 Fair-time Contests & Special Events

Contest Tips! Plan to arrive at least 5 minutes before the start for most contests. Some contests have limits, but others (like SCREAM) are open to all who show up on time. For many contests, you can't enter if you arrive after we start. You will be asked to fill out a card for each contest you enter. If you want to save time, think about bringing address labels from home!

Please check back in June for 2023 updates on contest and games.
