Free Live Music

Sonoma County Fair

Dance in the park or in the streets at the Sonoma County Fair to free music played nearly all day every day. With four different venues to choose from, you can hear everything from rock to country to jazz to blues. So whether you are winding it up or winding it down, you won't be disappointed.

Interested in Performing?

We are hiring bands for the Park Stage. In the past, most of these bands have been based in Sonoma County or the Bay Area. Each band will be booked for one day only; three 45-minute sets. The Community Theater Stage is larger, and we are interested in well known acts with a following -- Club Bands or Tribute Acts. Our budget for these stages probably won't extend to national acts.

We are also looking for variety acts. Variety acts may be booked for one week, or the full run of the Fair.

If you are interested in performing at the Sonoma County Fair, send your promo information to Please do not add us to your mailing list - just send your info or a link. While we prefer that you send your info via email, if that isn't possible, you can mail it to us at The Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa, CA 95404. (If you performed at the Fair in 2017, you don't need to provide much info -- just a note saying you are interested in returning, and anything new we should know about your group.)

We will begin the Park Stage booking process in late February. You will be contacted one way or another by the first part of May.

Variety Act booking may start earlier, please send your info as soon as possible
