There are so many great things to do at the Fair you won't know where to start! You can enter a contest, visit the farm animals, watch a free concert, go on the rides, eats lots of yummy food or do one of the hundreds of other down home fair activities. Spin, flip or fly on the great rides in the carnival midway. Sample the gourmet food and wine (or beer) pairings at the "Bounty of the County: People's Choice" contest, or snack on fair favorites like corn dogs, funnel cake or cotton candy. Wander through the inspirational gardens of the Floriculture department and check out all of the exhibits and displays throughout the fair. Enter one of the cooking contests, or a pie eating contest, what could be more down home than that? FREE concerts and rodeos are presented in the Grandstand Entertainment series and of course the greatest summertime tradition: Ventura County's own fireworks over the ocean.
The Grandstand Arena Concert series at the 2016 fair will feature something for everyone: Country, Hispanic, Rock, R&B and more will keep you and your friends moving and grooving. All concerts are FREE with paid fair admission!

Visit the farm animals in the Livestock Center
The Ventura County Fair Livestock area houses all of the 4H Grange and FFA projects. The Judge William P. Clark Livestock Center adds a modern country look to the Fairgrounds and offers exhibitors the facilities they will need to present their animals in a safe, clean and welcoming environment. Stop by to see the farm animals, ask the volunteers and exhibitors questions about livestock, agriculture and the impact it has on our lives.
Every year we are inspired and impressed by thousands of great exhibits that are on display in Agriculture, Amateur Art, Floriculture, Gems & Minerals, Hobbies & Collections, Home Arts, Horse Shows, Large Livestock, Photography, Professional Art, Small Livestock, Uncle Leo's Barn and Youth Expo. See what your neighbors and friends have entered in the Fair, or enter your own creations!
