July is one of the best months to visit a county fair in California. Why? Several of the extended fairs such as San Diego, Sacramento, Orange County, Alameda County and Mid-State Fair have dates in July.
Summer guarantees shirt-sleeves and shorts weather and many fairs offer mist areas for cooling off during your visit.
