One of the best things about the Stanislaus County Fair is the opportunity to see the varied talents of county residents on display.

While the fair is still four months away, Exhibitor Handbooks are now available and offer information on how to enter items for judging.

 Exhibits include: homemade beer and wine, horticulture, floriculture, home arts, photography, and many  more. Exhibitors can download a copy of the exhibitor handbook, which lists exhibits and rules, from the fair’s website at The handbooks can also be picked up at the fair office located at 900 N. Broadway, Turlock.

The 2013 Stanislaus County Fair opens July 12 for a 10-day run. Discounted fair admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands, and season passes will be on sale beginning May 4. Corporate ticket sales are also available to purchase at a highly discounted rate.
