    That’s it? Two country acts and a Disney princess?
    Good grief. And I thought last year’s lineup was weak.

    Very lame…don’t even know who any of them are. What happened to the well known names of years past? Granted many of them have been “washed up” rockers, but at least people have heard of them.

    The Sonoma County Fair is such a trashy overpriced event. Its just a fighting ring for local gang members.

    The gang fights on the fairway will be more entertaining than these lightweights.

    They can’t even run the Sonoma County Horse Racing meet at the proper times to align with Del Mar’s race times on Friday’s to attract and keep people at the track so would you expect the entertainment to be any better!!! Just a very poor run Fair!!! Hopefully Tesconi retired as Fair President maybe there’s a chance!! So smart to start your horses running on a Friday at 12:45 when Del Mar does not start till 4pm–the track is dead by 4:30pm on a Friday!!!
