Directions to the Alameda County Fair
The Alameda County Fair is located off of the Bernal Ave Exit from the 680 Highway in Pleasanton, California. Go to this page for further info.
Here is a map of the fairgrounds.
The first Alameda County Fair ran from October 23 to October 27, 1912. Local leaders sought to form a modern fair, and in 1939 the Alameda County Fair Association was born. Once considered a racing fair, the Alameda County Fair now boasts livestock and agriculture, thrilling carnival rides, beautiful quilt exhibits, baking contests, fast-paced horse racing, food, and now the SambaFunk experience!
