Adventures in Agriculture is coming to the Ventura County Fairgrounds
Festivities include Bull Riding, Exhibits and Family Fun

Adventures in Agriculture is coming to the Ventura County Fairgrounds! The free event will be an educational and informative agricultural festival Saturday, May 31; 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Adventures in Agriculture will be the Fairgrounds’ second annual showcase of the agricultural community and industry. Antique Farm Equipment, Hot Air Balloon, Open Air Farmer’s Market, Children’s Activities, Entertainment, and more are on tap with a goal of educating visitors about the productive fields and agricultural assets here in our own back yard. A tortoise show will highlight the preview of the Fair's new Fishes & Friends Building.

Fine Art and Music are important features of Adventures in Agriculture. Gail Pidduck and John Nichols, acclaimed artists whose work has become well associated with agriculture in Ventura County, will show their artwork in the Fairgrounds’ Callahan Art Gallery. Ventura County’s favorite songsters “The Tune Bandits” and “The Iron Mountain Boys” will provide musical entertainment

Professional Bull Riding (America’s original extreme sport) will round out the day in the Grandstand arena. The show starts at 2pm and tickets for this special attraction are only $15.

Wyndham Hotels, Toyota and many other generous sponsors make Adventures in Agriculture possible. Stop by the Wyndham booth and ask how you can get a free hot dog and drink!

“Agriculture is Ventura County’s most valuable resource. We are happy that we can bring it to the community so that everyone can see the processes, and learn the values and opportunities it brings to us all,” said Barbara Quaid, CEO of the Ventura County Fairgrounds. “We have mixed in some fun and we hope that our neighbors and friends will enjoy what we have to offer.”
