The 75th Annual Santa Clara County Fair is Here!

Fairgrounds Heritage Foundation is excited to announce the 2019 75th Annual Fair on August 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.   We’ve put together an amazing history celebrating the Fair and Fairgrounds. It is housed in the Heritage Hall. Look for the mural of the Contented Cow and step into the past. This effort is led by Marcella Gulmon and her committee, who want to add to this marvelous collection of treasured items. If you have an item to donate or want to get involved, please send an email to [email protected]  telling us about the item and your special connection to the Fair or Fairgrounds.  Please check out the recent coverage in the San Jose Mercury News  here!
