  • this place has so much to do over the year, county fairs, car shows, weddings can be held there, cultural events and more. check out their website for all the events  more »
  • The fairgrounds is large and spread out - good or bad depending on the number of events that are entered. The bathrooms were clean although old and parking close to the building was easy to find.  more »
  • We found this a real fun day. Easy parking on site at only $8 & $20 entry ticket including an afternoon of wine tasting from 30 CA vineyards. Racing commenced at 1.15 & 10 races with fields of 6-9 hor...  more »
  • Was pretty cool. Loved the race track. And the stage area was cool. But i didnt park in the fairgrounds so the walk was brutal
  • Good guys car show. They must make a ton of money !!! $10 parking $20 entrance. Nice cars
  • Halloween bounce review: Great! Caring and alert staff, many activities. Reasonably priced, just read the whole list because the bundles save alot. Stayed 3x longer than I had estimated, and then had to drag the twins away.
  • Great fair. Entry price is good but if you have kids and want to do the carnival part be prepared to pay! Wrist bands are the way to go for the older kids. There are height requirements so for the little ones it might be better to get tickets rather then the wrist bands
  • Fabulous fair overall. Tons of things to do and see, and the horse races were really fun to watch! All of the totally enclosed buildings were air conditioned so there was always a way to beat the heat. Drinks and food are pricey, but that is to be expected at a fair like this. You are allowed to leave and re-enter the park with a hand stamp so it wasn't a big deal. Plenty of free things to see and do once you paid admission fees. Carnival rides and games were also expensive but again, the cost is expected. Parking was a disaster. $15+ dollars for parking that was full by noon. We parked on pleasanton's main street and took the 10min walk just to avoid the hassle.
