Welcome to the San Benito County Fair at the Bolado Park Event Center

We hope that you will come often and enjoy our facilities and the many activities we have planned for you.

Our county fair is an expression of the dedication and hard work of the youth of our county. We feel that there is no better investment than in the youth of today who are the citizens of tomorrow.
