There are a lot of skilled people making awesome things in Humboldt County. In celebration of our talented citizens, Redwood Acres and Humboldt Made present the Best of Humboldt Fair from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday, June 19 through Saturday, June 21 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 22 ($11, $5, $30 multi-day wristbands). Local artists and crafters will fill the home economics building with their wares.
Taking in everything the fair has to offer is likely to take you more than one visit, so be prepared to make at least one return trip. The kids will love the carnival and, let's face it, you'll probably enjoy it, too. Rides and games are open from noon to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
In addition to the sounds of the carnival rides, there will be live music from Doug's Neighbors, the Roadmasters and others on the center stage. Grab some fair food and tour the exotic animals, magicians, rodeo sports, livestock, car races and more.
