Orange County Fair

Orange County Fairgrounds, July-August 2017

The OC Fair showcases the talents and uniqueness of California in a variety of exhibits and displays.  During the OC Fair, fairgoers can peruse four acres of raised crop beds and livestock pens (cattle, goats, sheep, chicks, rabbits and pigs) and see the diversity of California agriculture.  The South Coast Weavers and Spinners Guild demonstrates for one week during the fair.  Stop by and say hello and learn all about how different fibers are spun into yarn and then are used to create all kinds of beautiful projects through knitting, crocheting and weaving.
