Today is opening day for the 83rd consectuive Sacramento County Fair. That means monster trucks, bull riding, farm animals, pony rides, camel rides, street musicians, hypnotists, puppet shows, jugglers, livestock, comedians, a petting zoo, friend food, circus acts, entertainment and shows, live music, midway rides, shopping, and more are rolling into town for a weekend of fun.
The Sacramento County Fair runs May 23-27, 2019 at the CalExpo Fairgrounds near Arden Fair Mall.
I know lots of people are all about the California State Fair, which also happens at CalExpo, but I LOVE the Sacramento County Fair because it’s way less overwhelming, it’s got a local vibe, and it’s smaller and totally doable in one day. Plus, while I could spend the whole day in the Midway hopping from ride to ride, OMG… the food is where it’s at.
