The Alameda County Fair – Fun for the whole family!

The Alameda County Fair is something many Bay Area residents look forward to every summer. People come from near and far for this great event that is named known as “The Spirit of Summer” this year.

Featuring something for everyone in the family to enjoy, from the midway full of rides and games to the exhibit halls with unique vendors that’s a great place to cool off. The Great American Petting Zoo and Barnyard Adventure gets you up close and personal with many animals, and close by is a rabbit exhibit!

There is the Kids Park for those too small to go on the midway rides, including a pony ride and entertainers on various stages. The ActionZone arena features freestyle motorcross, demolition derbies, and Monster Trucks and it’s definitely something to experience if you have never seen it.

Popular discount days include $2 admission until 5pm on June 21 and 28. On June 24 and July 1, kids 12 and under are free until 5pm. For free senior admission, plan to go on June 23 and 30.

The Alameda County Fair concert series are very popular, and seats are free with paid admission. Coming up is country favorites Joe Nichols and LeAnn Rimes, Smash Mouth, Tower of Power and Kool and the Gang. Check out the lineup to find one of your favorites!

Closing on the 4th of July this year, the Alameda County Fair is well known for its impressive fireworks show. Grab a seat in the horse racing stadium to witness the great Fireworks Spectacular, accompanied by the Oakland Symphony and with a special Tribute to Hometown Heroes preceding the great show of lights.

You can buy tickets online, at the entrance booth, or at these locations, including several Safeway stores.

All of us here at The J-Team hopes you have the opportunity to visit this special event and have a day of fun with the whole family!
