Sonoma County Fair

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.

The River Potluck Consulting

Music -- Community Theater

Community Theater will be bursting with talent during the Sonoma County Fair with everything from our NEW Community Concert Series to Talent Competitions to various Tribute Bands. You won't want to miss a single performance and you won't have to because ALL concerts are now FREE with Fair admission!

American Storage

Family, variety acts

Previous acts have included jugglers, magicians, puppeteers, and ventriloquists. We are also looking for several acts for very young children. Acts are usually booked for at least a full week of the Fair. Fair provides small sound system -- microphones, tape deck, etc. No sound operator, but there is a stage attendant.
