Tell Your Friends About The VC Fair!
The 2020 VC Fair has been canceled.
The 145th Ventura County Fair with its 12 days of fun, excitement, education and entertainment will return in 2021. It’s a Country Fair with Ocean Air! We hope to see you next year as we will once again enjoy the Fair and it’s joyful sights and sounds and that you will make beautiful Summer time memories with your friends and your family.
WE CAN STAND UP FOR YOU
BECAUSE YOU STAND BY US
Personalized bricks tell your story as a part of the Fairgrounds legacy, Your purchase will help us prepare for times to come.
Create permanent remembrances, tributes or celebrations for all to see.
In preparation for the future, both good times and emergencies, the #Fairgrounds Strong Brick Campaign is designed to raise funds which will keep the Fairgrounds maintained and ready to serve you while you are here for recreation and to immediately serve in the event of an emergency. During the Thomas Fire more than 8,500 First Responders, Red Cross, and VC Animal Services were supported in their efforts by the quick and attentive Fairgrounds staff. The Ventura County Fairgrounds receives no tax dollars or other State funding. It is because of the funds raised by the Fair, the Derby Club and the events throughout the year that the Fairgrounds is able to provide you with the prompt emergency services that are necessary during wildfires, floods, mudslides, extreme heat and other natural disasters.
We are grateful to the residents of Ventura County for generous patronage at the Fair and throughout the year. (Swap Meets, Dog Shows, Car Shows etc.) and the Derby Club (Horse Racing Live via Satellite)
Every corn dog and every carnival ride enjoyed at the Fair is another monetary contribution to Ventura County Fairgrounds. Because of your continued support we are able to provide necessary services in good times and in times of need.
The #FairgroundsStrong Brick Campaign is designed to raise funds to keep the Fairgrounds maintained and ready to serve immediately in the event of an emergency. Please order a tax deductable brick today. Please purchase your tax-deductible personalized brick today and help keep the Fairgrounds viable and reliable. Funds raised from the sale of bricks will help us during times of emergency to serve and maintain the high standards of accommodation our community deserves.
