We are still planning our 76th Salinas Valley Fair. As more information is made available by the Monterey County Health Department and the California Department of Public Health recommendations for COVID-19 we will update our event pages.

Out of respect for our fair family that have experienced unexpected financial hardships; we are only requiring the following actions for persons interested in our fair competitions:

  • Rabbit Meat Pen Competition is only open to exhibitors from Santa Cruz County, San Benito County and Monterey County.
2020 Competition Rule Consideration
