Welcome to the Exhibit Halls of the Sonoma-Marin Fair

The Sonoma-Marin Fair is proud to support the members of our community who create, innovate, and inspire through our Still Exhibit Contests. Fairgoers are invited to visit each of the exhibit halls to view the wonderful exhibits handcrafted by members of Sonoma and Marin Counties. See the beautiful quilts stitched together by hand, or amazing photography of our local landscapes.

This is the time of year that we get to see our county’s youth and adults showcase projects they have worked on all year. They stand to win the more than $37,000 in premium and prize money the fair awards each year to support our exhibitors.

For 2020, the exhibit halls will each celebrate our favorite games with our theme, “Fair Play!” The Showcase building will take guests through Candy Land and highlight a collection of wonderful homemade treats. In Herzog Hall, guests can participate in their own game of Pictionary while enjoying beautiful art, photography, floral arrangements, and quilts. In the Community Building, the Game of Life is the backdrop for crafts, youth exhibits, and industrial arts. There is a category for everyone…. If you made it, we’ll take it!
