Happening Now Near Fairway Village: The Alameda County Fair

June 21, 2019

The Alameda County Fair has already returned to the Alameda County Fairgrounds for its yearly stint, but you still have plenty of time to check out its attractions through Sunday, July 7th. It’s open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., except for the Fourth of July, when it closes at 8 p.m.

Pick a day to come out to the fair and take a spin on a few carnival rides, chow down on some creative fried foods, and meet barnyard critters at the petting zoo. The fair will also host special cultural festivals this year for the first time ever, which will encompass everything from cooking demos to live entertainment. Check out the Asian Pacific Celebration at the fair on June 23rd or Bollywood at the Fair on June 30th. You can also catch fireworks almost every evening at 9:30 p.m., following the nightly concerts. Headliners range from Ashanti to the Gin Blossoms, and the concerts require an extra ticket in addition to general admission, which starts at $15.
