The Fair Is Back!

It’s not in full gear, but it’s still here. This year’s modified Sonoma County Fair will feature a carnival, live adult and children’s concerts, youth garden and livestock exhibits, and, for separate fees, rodeo and monster truck events. The COVID catch? Limited capacity. That means that only a certain number of people will be able to visit the fair each day. So purchasing tickets in advance is recommended. The fair will be held July 28–August 1 and August 4–8 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa. Advance tickets, which can be purchased at, are $10 for ages 13 and older, $5 for ages 6–12, and free for ages 5 and younger; ride wristbands are $25.
