For your convenience we have uploaded our logos and approved fair images as links below. Please let us know if you can’t find what you are looking for.


The Sonoma-Marin Fair is the 4th District Agricultural Association dedicated to promoting and showcasing agriculture, while displaying the diverse talents, interests and accomplishments of the citizens of California, especially the youth of Sonoma and Marin counties. This is achieved by providing education, entertainment and recreational opportunities for the general public, while continually striving towards enhancing the promotion and preservation of California’s agricultural heritage.

It’s 2019 and our 80th Year! Plan to join in our celebration for five fun-filled days June 19-23rd and follow our preparations right here as they unfold. We have new competitions, new contests, great entertainment, and all your old favorites. 
For eight decades the Sonoma-Marin Fair has been a part of our lives, and we look forward to revisiting those decades with you: local farming in the 40s, popular food of the 50s, art movements of the 60s, crafts and culture of the 70s, 80s, and 90s – a full eight decades of fun! We also turn our eyes toward the future, and the next generation of ag professionals, craftspeople, entertainers, communicators, architects, artists, and leaders. Mark your calendars! For details, visit or call (707) 283-3247.
