How to have a perfect day at the Ventura County Fair

by Visit Ventura

Want to avoid at least one long line? We recommend that you…

Buy your tickets ahead of time!

You can buy both ride and admission tickets ahead of time at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

Over 300,000 people came to the Ventura County Fair last summer -that’s a lot of cars. Why struggle being stuck in traffic or finding a parking spot when you can

Take the train or shuttle!

The Amtrak station picks up and drops off directly in front of the Fairgrounds.

The best way to get into the fair spirit once you arrive is to jump on the rides!

Insider tip: Seek out a spot on the Ferris Wheel right around sunset to watch the sun go down over the Pacific.
