Placer County Fair Summer Beach Party 2014

Roseville, CA -- Just in time for June's lazy days of summer, the Placer County Fair is getting ready for a Summer Beach Party.

The annual Fair set for June 19-22 is just in time for hot weather and kids already getting bored with summer vacation.

Under the new management of CEO Carrie Wimer, plans are in the works for a "new and improved" Placer County Fair.  "We are excited about the new entertainment level with some great West Coast bands back on Sunset Lawn, more strolling entertainment and for the kids, Circus Imagination. We want to make sure there is something fun around every corner whether it's the Giant Alligator, Skip Banks in his giant yellow balloon, or a visit to see the farm animals and the goat costume contest."

California favorite Chris Gardner will open the Fair on Thursday with his high energy country music. On Friday, America's favorite nerds arrive with the Spazmatics, who gained notoriety for playing at Drew Barrymore's wedding. Complete with skinny ties, Brill Creamed hair, and horn-rimmed glasses, The Spazmatics recapture all the best of the worst from the 1980's.

In contrast the very cool Nathan Owens' show band arrives on Saturday with the hip and cool sound of Motown mixed with Soul.  The popular casino nightclub act brings the full sound and dance moves of Detroit.  On Sunday, the Sixties Summer of Love arrives with tie die and flower power. The only thing missing with their big sound is the VW bus on the stage.

The Fair will keep tradition alive with exhibit halls filled with displays of the community's many talents from preserves and pies to quilts and crafts, produce, floriculture, an art and photography exhibit and the many things the kids have created on their own or as school projects. 4-H, FFA, and Independent youth proudly show their animals in the livestock rings, then the best of the market animals are sold at the Jr. Livestock Auction.

Expect to get your fill of the famous Fair Food - whether you dream of corn dogs and cotton candy or a giant plate of curly fries.  Vendors are ready to sell patrons the latest gadget or gizmo they can't live without, while families stop to get their photos taken.
