Music -- Park Stage

A wide range of music, from country to oldies to rock to big band. Acoustic music may not be appropriate because of the ambient noise level around the stage. This is a family audience--language that is appropriate in a bar may not be appropriate here. The Fair provides full sound and lights, as well as an operator. Bands are traditionally booked for one day only, usually three 45-minute sets.

Music -- Community Theater

Community Theater will be bursting with talent during the Sonoma County Fair with everything from our Community Concert Series to a Blues Festival to this year’s Elvis Impersonation Contest. You won't want to miss a single performance and you won't have to because ALL concerts are FREE with Fair admission!

Entertainment -- Hall of Flowers Stage

The Hall of Flowers introduced a special new feature. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at the Fair bring local acts to the new Hall of Flowers stage from 6:30 - 9:00 pm.

Family, variety acts

Previous acts have included jugglers, magicians, puppeteers, and ventriloquists. We are looking for several family-oriented acts. Acts are usually booked for at least a full week of the Fair. Fair provides small sound system (no sound operator) and there is a stage attendant.

Community Groups - Application Coming in 2019

Do you belong to a theater troupe, a community band, dance group, a choir or other performing group?* Would you like to appear at the Sonoma County Fair, and share your talents with your neighbors? If the answer is yes, submit a Community Performance Application and we will try to find a place for you at the 2018 Sonoma County Fair. You won’t be paid for your performance, but those who perform will receive free admission, a participant ribbon and a chance to perform for an appreciative audience. *Unfortunately, in most cases we can’t accommodate some small bands, but please contact the Fair if you are interested.
