Ready for some homespun hospitality? Come to our County Fairs.

Spring through September is County Fair season across the California Countryside. In addition to all the scenery and sunshine, travelers can enjoy events, exhibits, entertainment … and more farm animals than you can shake a shovel at. Not to mention the chance to browse arts & crafts products and eat scrumptious fair food. Many of California's county fairs also offer horse racing (check out the mule races for furious and fast-footed fun), thrill-ride carnivals and pyro-spectacular fireworks. All offer a great way to engage locals in easy conversation. This is the way to feel in a place, not just at it.

From the famous jumping frog contest of the Calaveras County Fair to fine wine auctions at the Sonoma County Fair, every one has its own style and some unique features.

Click on a part of the state and you'll be taken to the fairs in that area, where you'll find folks from all over the California Countryside in happy places.
