Solano County Fairgrounds Is Your Event Place!


Whether you have a large event or a small event, and whether it may be a private event or a public event, whether you prefer indoors or outdoors, the Solano County Fairgrounds is the perfect place for almost any event.

Here's just a few good reasons to choose the Solano County Fairgrounds:


  • There are 5 major buildings containing 61,400 square feet of space for indoor events.
  • The complex sits on 157 acres at the intersection of Interstate 80 and State Highway 37, so it is easily accessible and conveniently located for all of the bay area and beyond.
  • Just in case you might need this, we have a 5,000 seat grandstand, plus 1,000 seat bleacher seating for overflow.
  • There are 5 acres of paved area inside the grounds, so it is ideal for vehicle shows, motor sports, and other large outdoor attractions.
  • There is parking for 5,600 cars.
  • Adjacent to the fairgrounds is a full-service Courtyard by Marriott hotel, and just across the street from the fairgrounds is the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom Theme Park. Tie that with your event and you'll get nothing but rave reviews!

Solano County Fair Association Unveils New Community Partnership: FairHands



“FairHands” sponsorships now available 
to support youth agriculture programs at the Fairgrounds 

Solano County, CA – Youth agriculture programs and education are one of the core values of the Solano County Fairgrounds and now the community can be a part of that tradition.

The Solano County Fair Association has announced its new “FairHands Sponsorship Program” designed to help sustain Youth Ag Day and the Solano County Fair’s youth exhibits, including the livestock competition and auction.

“In the same way that farmhands are essential to the operations of a farm, our FairHands will be an important part in continuing the success and legacy of our youth agriculture programs,” said Solano County Fairgrounds General Manager, Stephen Pierce.

For an annual contribution of $100, FairHands will receive a package of benefits including two admission tickets and one parking pass to the Solano County Fair, coupons for 2‐for‐1 admission to the Solano Race Place, and a coupon for $200 off any Fairgrounds facility rental Monday through Friday. Additionally, FairHands will be recognized during the annual county fair with their name or business name displayed with the FairHands logo on a prominent location in the Livestock Barns.

“This is a great way for individuals or smaller businesses to jump in at an entry level to help support youth activities at the Fairgrounds,” Pierce said.

FairHands sponsors can join in person at the Fairgrounds’ office or online on the FairHands page of the Fair’s web site SCFair.com. For additional information, email FairHands@SCFair.org or call 707‐551‐2002.


Established in 1949 to produce the annual County Fair, the Solano County Fair Association is a 501(c)3 non‐profit agency that is governed by a Board of Directors. The Solano County Fair Association has been providing educational, cultural, artistic, commercial and recreational programs to the residents of Solano County for over 65 years. The mission of the Solano County Fair Association is “to ensure a positive experience for the public by providing a year‐round multi‐purpose venue that showcases and celebrates the wide variety of resources and activities available to our diverse community.”

Annual Youth Ag Day Is Tuesday, March 17th

This fun and educational event is free to all third grade classes in Solano County and features a wide variety of rotational learning stations and displays.  Activities are designed to give children the opportunity to learn about food and fiber production from new perspectives, with a particular emphasis on the agricultural wealth of Solano County.  Children participate in hands-on displays and educational presentations as well as an optional pre-event classroom project to enhance the field trip learning experience.
