Monterey County Fair: A celebration of a Rich Heritage


Come and have endless fun on Monterey County Fairgrounds during the Monterey County Fair festival set to happen from 3rd September to 6th September 2021.

Usually held annually to celebrate the unique lifestyle of Monterey, this four-day event always entails lots and lots of fun activities befitting both adults and children alike.

Being an event to celebrate the heritage and way of life of Monterey, the county’s culture is exhibited through various ways from cultural dances and music to the distinctive arts and mouth watering local cuisines.

Monterey is a super diverse county that has an expansive list of things to be proud of. Starting with the beautiful aquaculture of the coast to the abundant agricultural produce and great wine selection, to the thought-provoking home art and the wide variety of livestock.

This event is always a beehive of activities and if you are not a fan of art, agriculture or aquaculture, you can enjoy watching the gymnasts, hypnotists, clowns and theatrical troupes doing their thing.

You can also sit down and listen to the stories done by talented storytellers and the karoekes performed by both experienced artists and fun-loving armatures.  And do you enjoy carnival rides? You are in luck because among the many family-friendly activities, carnival riding is one of them.

Lastly, what’s a celebration without some electrifying live performance? You get to enjoy, first-hand, Monterey’s best musicians perform live! What more can you possibly ask for?

With these many fun, engaging and educative activities, the Monterey County Fair definitely makes a good bonding and team building event for both families and colleagues.
