Mark Your Calendars - Youth Ag Day is March 15th! Free to All 3rd Grade Classes in Solano County!


The annual Youth Ag Day is a collaborative effort of the Solano County Fair and agricultural related businesses, organizations, farmers, ranchers and other individuals to encourage Solano County third graders to experience agriculture first-hand.

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.

2016 marks the 14th annual Youth Ag Day, an event that would not be possible without a dedicated core of volunteers, presenters from all facets of agriculture, and many generous individual and group sponsors who provide needed funds to subsidize bus transportation for students.
