The Sonoma County Fair is just around the corner, with 16 days of fair magic starting Thursday, July 25 and running through Sunday, August 11 (closed Mondays). There are so many great things to do and see, it's often hard to choose, so this Top 20 list of old favorites and new attractions will help you plan some "Home Spun Fun"! Be sure to get your tickets early because pre-sale admission savings are only available through July 24. So now is the time to plan new family traditions and make lasting fair-time memories with these great exhibits and activities:

<strong> </strong>

<strong> 1. TOUR THE HALL OF FLOWERS </strong>

Enter the magical land of the Hall of Flowers, with eleven masterly crafted vignettes designed on the theme, "backyard blossoms". See it first at the Grand Opening Celebration, July 24 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm.

<strong> 2. CHEER ON YOUR FAVORITE HORSE OR JOCKEY </strong>

Come enjoy the thrill of live horse racing on one of California's most beautiful tracks. Sit in on a free racing seminar, bet on the ponies, or cheer on your favorite small pup during the Derby Dog Dash.

<strong> 3. GET DOWN IN THE DIRT IN CHRIS BECK ARENA</strong>

It's down in the dirt fun at the Chris Beck Arena! This year we have five amazing shows to choose from. The PRCA Rodeo (July 27), Flat Track Motorcycle Races (August 2), Destruction Derby (August 3) or the Monster Trucks (August 10 or 11). Arena shows require an additional ticket purchase.
