75 Years of Sonoma County Fair Themes

Over the years, the Sonoma County Fair has had many themes. That’s our theme for the contest today!

Today’s contest for a pair of general admission tickets isn’t going to be as easy as the last one! You’re going to have to get creative. Here’s how it works:

1) Read the list of past Sonoma County Fair themes.

2) Come up with a theme for a future fair. Repeats or simply rephrasing from the list below won’t qualify.

3) Visit our Facebook page and look for the contest post.

4) Add your theme to the comments below the post.

5) Go through the rest of the theme suggestions in the comments and “like” your favorites. You can like your own too!

6) The person who posts the theme with the most “likes” by 5:00 pm wins the tickets!

See? Not too hard! (only ONE submission per person, please!)
