If you haven’t yet visited the California Mid-State Fair, you’ve still got time! This annual event runs through July 30 at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles. This family-friendly event is a beloved annual tradition for many Central Coast residents, as there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy. As your Central Coast real estate agent, allow me to fill you in on some of the details!
If you’ve got community pride, you’ll love the new Showcase of Cities this year. Displays are set up to help you discover the best places to live on the Central Coast. You can vote for your favorite city to take home the People’s Choice Award! You can also support artisans, crafters and growers at the Mission Marketplace. You can even support local brewers by tasting locally crafted beers!
Big-name entertainment is the name of the game at the California Mid-State Fair, but many of the concerts have already passed for this year. But you’ve still got options! ZZ Top is performing tonight, July 25. Luke Bryan is performing tomorrow, July 26. July 27, enjoy Music & Wine with KC & The Sunshine Band! Then July 28 is the Rodeo Finals and July 29 is Bikes, Bulls & Pulls.
There are also plenty of free musical performances to check out. Upcoming options include Devin Dawson, Kenny Taylor, Code Blues, Kris Kristofferson and more. You can view the whole lineup on the website’s entertainment section.
Live music isn’t the only entertainment to be had. There are a whole slew of activities, carnival rides, demonstrations and special events. Kids will love the petting zoo, pony rides, tractor rides and more. The whole family can enjoy livestock shows, rodeos, horse shows, exhibits, daily parades and more. Tomorrow is a pancake breakfast. Craft beer tasting is today!
If you go for the food, you’re not alone! Every year, you can find delicious meal options, savory snacks, sweet treats, adult beverages, kids’ beverages and options to cool you down, such as ice cream and iced drinks. New vendors this year include Baja Lobster Dogs, Batch, Pon’s Chinese Food, The Hurricane Kitchen, The Gingerbread Shop and many more. The Fair has also incorporated more shaded locations this year, so you can more easily enjoy your selections.
