santa barbara county fair

It’s fair time in Santa Barbara County.

The 2018 Santa Barbara County Fair kicks off its five day run in Santa Maria Wednesday. It will have everything from traditional events like livestock, crafts, and carnival rides to unusual things like a live shark show.

A Grammy Awarded nominated singer/songwriter who’s had a number of solo hits, but also performed with Beyonce and Prince is going to be a headliner at a Central Coast fair.

Sheila E.was a vocalist, and percussionist with Prince in the 1980’s before launching her own solo career.

You’ve heard the expression “the show must go on.”

Well, in Santa Barbara County, even though the Alamo Fire is still burning northeast of Santa Maria, it’s the County Fair which is still going on as usual.

The 2017 Santa Barbara County Fair is now underway, and runs through Sunday at the Santa Maria Fairpark.
