Make the most of the upcoming Stanislaus County Fair by taking advantage of all the free features such as the Park ‘n Ride shuttles, ReCharge Modesto Toyota Lounge, and the Baby Care Center.

The Fair’s free and convenient shuttle program is sponsored by FOX40, Budweiser, and the Vintage Faire Mall. Guests can park at CSU, Stanislaus on Crowell Road or park at Pitman High School in Turlock on Christoffersen Parkway and take the shuttle bus to the Fair. Shuttles depart every 15 minutes to and from the Fair’s Arch Gate. The buses run Monday through Friday from 4:30 p.m. to midnight and Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to midnight. Guests traveling by freeway may take the Fulkerth Road exit to go directly to the Fair, or use the alternative Taylor Road or Monte Vista Avenue exits for shuttle parking lots.

“The Fair strives to make things more convenient for guests so they may relax and truly enjoy the essence of the Fair,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair.

After guests arrive and begin their day at the Fair they are welcome to visit the ReCharge Modesto Toyota Lounge to charge their iPhone and Android devices. The lounge will be in Building E-7 across from the VFW hamburger booth. This is a great opportunity for guests to recharge themselves and their portable devices. The lounge will be open daily during the Fair on weekdays from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. and weekends from noon to 11 p.m.

Parents looking to take care of their little ones in a relaxed and enclosed facility can do just that in the Baby Care Center located directly next to the ReCharge Modesto Toyota Lounge. With the help of Honey’s Air & Solar the comfortable lounge will offer three stations for nursing mothers along with a reclining couch and table. There will be a play area for children; a changing station in the restrooms; and high chairs for feedings. The lounge will be open daily during the Fair on weekdays from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and weekends noon to 10 p.m.


The 2017 Stanislaus County Fair opens Friday, July 14 for a 10-day run. Discounted Fair admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands, and the Fair season pass are on sale now through Thursday, July 13. Visit the Fair’s website for more information at
