    Located on 22 oak-studded acres, the Monterey County Fair offers outstanding entertainment, creative activities, and extensive agricultural education to the community. The Fair attracts over 75,000 attendees from the surrounding three Counties (Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Benito) and beyond. In addition to crowd-pleasing family entertainment, carnival rides, games, and delicious Fair-food, the Fair provides an opportunity to celebrate Monterey County's unique history and heritage, from the aquaculture of Monterey's coast to the abundant produce and wines from its agriculture. Competitors in both junior and adult exhibitions show livestock, gardening, arts and crafts in the exhibition halls. Fairgoers also compete in daily cooking contests. A variety of sponsors and vendors provide interesting exhibits to Fairgoers as well. Live performances on the three stages and throughout the Fairgrounds each year include a changing variety of talented hypnotists, gymnasts, dancers, clowns, theatrical troupes, storytellers, splash dogs, pig racing, karaoke and much more. In addition to nationally known musicians that perform live each night, the Fair also has “after-hours” performances at the Dive Bar near the main stage. Each day of the Fair focuses on a different target demographic, such as Kids’ Day, Seniors’ Day, Military Day, and Fiesta Day which includes wonderful Latino entertainment.
