ABOUT THE SONOMA COUNTY FAIR
The Sonoma County Event Center at the Fairgrounds is here to serve as a community gathering place. Located in Santa Rosa, our Fairgrounds is home to the Sonoma County Fair. The Sonoma County Fair is among our region's most time-honored and cherished traditions. It began in 1936, when local leaders Joseph T. Grace, Ernest Finley, Emil Kraft and V.G. Garrett joined forces to create a race track and exposition center to showcase the abundance of Sonoma County.
Now in it's 84th year, the Fair has grown to become one of the most popular in the state, famous for its top quality horse racing, stunning flower show, and constant innovations in family entertainment. We continue in our unswerving commitment to showcase and provide education on the wealth of our agricultural industry while we celebrate the talents of our community.
The Fairgrounds is also home to over 200 events a year including festivals, concerts, agricultural shows, horse shows, dog shows, trade shows, cultural, and private events. Our Fairgrounds is here to serve our community as a gathering place for all to enjoy!
