Time to start practicing your animal noises, grape spitting and scarecrow making! We just posted the 2011 Sonoma County Fair contest schedule right here on our website.
Every year we have contests througout the fairgrounds every day of the Fair. A full description of the contests will be posted soon, but for now you can take a look at the line-up and plan for which ones you want to win.

Do you have an ear-piercing, brain rattling shriek? It’s SCREAM! – the loudest and most piercing scream wins! (You might want to warn the neighbors before you practice this one)

Some contests are just for kids, like the Kid Races (a footrace), Stroller Races, Egg Hunts and the best milk moustache (10 & under). And, that’s just the beginning!
Families can participate too. There’s the Family Look-Alike contest and Scarecrow Building and Un-Building contests that the whole famly can enjoy.
