Sonoma County Fair

Blues and Brews

Wind down the afternoon in one of the hottest spots in Sonoma County, the Brews & Brews Lounge. The premier draw is old school rock 'n' soul saxophonist and singer Terry Hanck makes perfect sense. Clearly, Hanck has worshipped at the right Southern altars-- those of such iconic R&B brothers as Fats Domino, Ray Charles, B. B. King, Lee Allen and King Curtis. "I write songs that you think you've heard for years," says the South Florida-based Hanck, who's got suave movie-star looks and a good time presence that immutably anchors the old-style R&B he adores.
With a full bar, an amazing selection of beers, and several of Sonoma County's finest wines, every palate is sure to be satisfied.
Located Inside the Brookwood Gate, on Magnolia Ave.
Music by The Terry Hanck Band, 5:30 - 8 pm. Every Night of the Fair

Honky-Tonk Saloon

Named by the CMA as being "Who New To Watch", Dave Russell is truly starting to hit his stride as one of Nashville's Newest Recording Artists.
He will be playing some of the great contemporary hits, but also the classics. One of the things that makes Dave unique is his ability to impersonate the voices of the greats of country music. Stop by and check it out...Dave enjoys being able to stop the show to be able to interact with his crowd.
Honkey-Tonk Saloon will be featuring Tito's and Jack Daniels as well as the music of Dave Russell.
5:30 - 8 pm. Every Night of the Fair

Mexican Village

Los Hermanos have built up a strong following at the Fair over the years, so grab some lunch and join them under the awning! In addition to live music, the Mexican Village is the place to find delicious food, tasty drinks, shopping & more. The Village is also the gateway to the Kiddy Carnival, home to rides for the youngest fairgoers.
Stop by the and enjoy Los Hermanos Avalos as they perform traditional hispanic folk music from 3pm to 6pm, Aug 4 - Aug 13.

Music at Shade Park

Sonoma County Fair Shade Park, home of the BAAQMD Park Stage, is the place to be for music every day of the Fair, starting at 2:15 p.m. and continuing until 9:30 p.m. each night. Enjoy more than 20 bands over 10 days. Fairgoers can sit at picnic tables under the trees in Shade Park and listen to a wide range of music. Fairgoers of all ages are invited to settle in to watch a show and even dance along if they feel like it. Nearby vendors offer a wide variety of food. In keeping with our tropical theme, the Park Stage roster is heavy with local and Bay Area musicians singing surf, beach and all kinds of tropical music. And those bands that aren't known for their beach music are digging deep and have promised at least one song per set to go with the Fair theme. See how many you can catch!
