Bright Lights and Big Rides

Jul 24, 2019 02:21PM
Climbing onto gravity-defying contraptions, munching on sticky-sweet cotton candy, meandering through a glittery midway—these are the amusements most Americans associate with going to the fair. And the Sonoma County Fair will offer all of them as well as some kid-centric entertainment: a Family Fun stage and Kids’ Area featuring the western comedy show CowGirl Tricks, and LEGO and milk moustache contests. In addition to kids’ activities, there also will be Hawaiian, country, rock, and retro rock live music; dance troupes; horse races; and, for an extra fee, a rodeo, monster truck shows, and the Nor Cal Brew Fest. The fair runs August 1–11. General admission is $7–$15; 6 and younger get in free. Parking is $9–$15. See for more information.
