El Dorado County Fair

Thursday, June 13 through Sunday, June 16, El Dorado County Fair & Event Center, $7-$12


Perhaps you caught the SN&R calendar pick for the Sacramento County Fair—well, there’s a new county fair in town, one representing the best in El Dorado County. Join in the fun as the fair kicks off for a few days of real, wheelbarrow-themed fun. There are plenty of musical acts including Spazmatics, the Herald and the Outcome, along with a bubble gum competition, funnel cake eating contests, rides and more. And, yes, there will be the wheelbarrow race, the 75th anniversary edition. 100 Placerville Drive in Placerville, eldoradocountyfair.com.
