  • What’s the Mid-State Fair like?

    It’s a classic state fair with tons of exhibits, food and beer competitions, and crafts. There is also a wealth of animals on display that kids will be drawn to. And they’ll definitely be interested to see the outcome of the animal competitions sponsored by the Paso Robles 4-H club.
  • Are the fairgrounds family-friendly?

    The fairgrounds are very family-friendly. However, there is beer served at many events so by the end of the day, there may be some rowdiness. It’s probably a good idea to pack up the kids and leave before sundown.
