The Stanislaus County Fair kicks off on Friday, July 12 with all of the quintessential fair activities we love: carnivals, concerts, rodeo, motorcross, agricultural exhibits, horse shows and more.
Specifically for children, the fair's fun includes the 4-H Farmyard Experience, Lowes Playhouse and Kids Make-and-Take Project Zone, and the kid's Midway with pint-sized carnival rides.

Thursday, July 18 is Kid's Night at the fair. Children 12 and under are given free admission into the fair.
