Solano County Fair July 31 to Aug. 4

July 6, 2013

No single event showcases the diversity of Solano County like the Solano County Fair, which celebrates "Home Grown Fun!" from July 31 to Aug. 4.

The Fair is excited to announce the expansion of its popular Cultural Pavilion with the addition of the Vallejo Inter-Tribal Council.  The Inter-Tribal Council joins the Filipino Community of Solano County, the Solano County Black Chamber of Commerce, and the Solano Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in a collaborative display of cultural history, art, crafts and entertainment.

In addition to the ethnic entertainment performing on the Cultural Pavilion Stage, the Solano County Fair will include free headline concert entertainment each night, including:

  • Pablo Cruise on Wednesday, July 31
  • WAR on Thursday, Aug. 1
  • The Spinners on Friday, August 2,
  • Tower of Power on Saturday, August 3.
  • Tejano superstars, Industria del Amor, with special guest Banda la ViƱera, on Sunday, Aug. 4

Of course, the Solano County Fair has traditional favorites: the carnival midway of rides and games; blue ribbon exhibits of livestock, artwork and other contests; a Family Fun Zone with pig races, petting zoo and pony rides; and the once-a-year Fair food indulgences.  New attractions this year includes a nightly karaoke party and a K-9 Kings flying dog show.

All entertainment, including concerts, is included free with Fair admission.  

Fair admission prices are $8 in advance and $10 on-site for adults, $4 in advance and $6 on-site for children ages 6-12 and seniors 60+.  Children 5 and under are always free.  Military personnel and dependents with an active duty card are also always free.  Select activities, carnival rides and games have a separate cost.  Carnival wristbands, good all day any one day, are $20 in advance and $25 on-site.

Fair hours are 3 to 11 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and noon to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
