Ventura County Fair launches 2022 Fair Season

VC Fair Rides Again! That’s the tagline for this year’s Ventura County Fair, coming to your favorite seaside fairgrounds Wednesday, August 3 through Sunday, August 14.

The wheels are in motion, preparations are being made and the highly anticipated time has come to invite VC Fair Lovers to start planning for their 2022 Fair experience.

Exhibits are the heart of the Fair and the VC Fair offers the chance to show off your creativity in a variety of competitive exhibits from baking, wine making, photography, art and more! You can win the bragging rights and cash prizes by entering your masterpiece in one of our many competitive departments including Agriculture, Amateur Art, Floriculture, Gems & Minerals, Hobbies & Collections, Home Arts, Horse Shows, Large Livestock, Photography, Pro Arts, Small Livestock, Uncle Leo’s Barn and Youth Expo.

In Ventura County, our competitive spirit is a big part of who we are – and in few places is it more evident than at the VC Fair. Each year, thousands of participants cater to their competitive side by entering in competitions spanning a full range of categories including culinary, fine arts, photography, livestock and more. From delicious desserts to champion cattle, the Fair hosts competitions for nearly every interest and age group. Whether it’s a premium cash prize, a coveted blue ribbon, or just good old-fashioned bragging rights at stake, we wish you the best of luck!

“If you think competition is fun… then you’re in the right place,” said Barbara Quaid, VC Fairgrounds CEO, adding “The VC Fair is the epicenter of spirited competition. Call it a throwback to simpler times if you like. What we know for sure is this: Fairgoers flock to see the entries year after year. And that feels good for everyone involved.”

All of the entry information is available on the brand-new Fair website: where you will also find ways to participate including how to volunteer, contest entries for kids and more. Important Fair information such as directions, hours, admission, and schedules of events, including contests and entertainment, that are being planned for the Fair will be found on the new colorful, fun and easy-to-use website.
