There are many wonderful places in the world,
but one of my favorite places is on the back of my horse.”
2020 Fair Theme: Stars and Stirrups

El Dorado
County Fair

4 days of Fun, July 9 - 12 2020


During this trying time, we wanted to let you know that we are going full steam ahead with plans for this year’s Fair. That being said, we are keeping informed with the situation and its changes, and are in touch with the local authorities and the health department. At this point, much of the data says the worst may pass by May, and that makes us optimistic. We feel it is premature to alter any details as it pertains to the Fair other than to say we are concentrating on how to provide the safest possible environment for all concerned. Should anything change we will let you know. Looking forward to our mid-June Fair, please peruse some of this year’s entertainment
