The Placer County Fair is looking for one-of-a-kind creations and mouth-watering sensations from community members dreaming of Blue Ribbons to small-business owners seeking money-making opportunities.
The Placer County Fair is accepting applications from residents to compete for awards in dozens of categories – from baking to beer-making – and vendors looking to sell their arts and crafts or food at one of the largest and longest-running events in Placer Valley.
The Fair is also looking for additional corporate sponsors interested in connecting with thousands of fairgoers and recruiting more volunteers that help make the event such a success.
The Placer County Fair opens @the Grounds on Thursday, June 23, and continues through Sunday, June 26. The fair is open 5-11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and noon to 11 p.m. Sunday at 700 Event Center Drive in Roseville (formerly known as the Placer County Fairgrounds).
You can learn more – including how to apply as a vendor, competitor in the still exhibits, corporate sponsor or even as a volunteer – at https://www.placercountyfair.org. The deadline to apply for a vendor booth is Monday, May 30, while the deadline for still exhibits is Tuesday, May 31.
Admission to the fair is $10 for adults; $6 for children 6 to 13 years old; children 5 and under are free; and military and seniors 65 years and older are $8. Additional admission and carnival ticket information is available at https://www.placercountyfair.org/tickets. Parking is $10 per day.
