2017 Ventura County Fair

August 2, 2017 @ 11:00 am - August 13, 2017 @ 11:00 pm

It’s time for the Ventura County Fair “Rooted in Tradition!”

Grandstand Concerts
Every year the Grandstand Arena Concert series at the Fair features something for everyone: Country, Hispanic, Rock, R&B and more. We hope the 10 exciting concerts kept you and your friends moving and grooving. Ventura County Fair Grandstand Arena Concerts are FREE with paid fair admission!

Ventura County Fair Parade
Saturday, August 5 at 10 AM in downtown Ventura.

There’s nothing like Saturday mornings in the good old summertime. Spending time enjoying the beginning of the weekend with the family can’t be beat. On the morning of Saturday, August 5, our neighbors and friends visited Downtown Ventura to enjoy the colorful fun of the Annual Ventura County Fair Parade. With High School Marching Bands, Classic Cars, Horses, Clowns, Politicians, School Groups, Dancers and more the parade is a summertime tradition.  We hope the memories of the music, colors, smiles and old fashioned down home fun at the parade will live in your heart forever.

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. This is a great opportunity for you to bring your family to see the farm animals, ask the volunteers and exhibitors questions about livestock and agriculture, and the impact it has on our lives.

Amazing Exhibits!
As every year we were inspired and impressed by thousands of great exhibits that were 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. It’s so much fun to see what your neighbors and friends have entered in the Fair, or enter your own creations!
