Welcome to the
Trinity County Fair!
The Trinity County Fair is a small rural fair and one of the last truly "Country Fairs" left in California. In 2010 our fair was featured as one of twelve episodes of the "California's Golden Fairs" series with PBS host Huell Howser.
The Trinity County Fair started in 1921 and owes its beginnings to H.C. Smith, a Hayfork rancher who tried for years, and succeeded, to convince his neighbors and friends to help organize a local fair. People of Trinity County have been showcasing their rural heritage and culture ever since.
Today, the fairgrounds are also host to many diverse activities such as weddings, family gatherings, birthday parties, fundraisers, community events and meetings, winter roller rink, bingo, roller derby, and educational activities for both young and not so young. Check our Events Calendar for all activities scheduled throughout the year.
It is the purpose of the Trinity County Fair Association to provide for the management of the Trinity County Fair in the best interest of the people of Trinity County by maximizing the resources available, promoting agriculture, and maintaining a rural atmosphere.
