‘Patriotic Sky Spectacular’ due at Stanislaus County fair in July
Stan Fair

Officials with the Stanislaus County Fair are thrilled to announce that the fair has been awarded a generous grant from The Valley Air District to introduce an innovative and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional fireworks displays, by utilizing drones instead of traditional fireworks.

“We are incredibly grateful to The Valley Air District for their support in making this environmentally conscious entertainment option a reality,” said Kim Williams, CEO of the Stanislaus County Fair. “We believe that the drone show will not only captivate our Fair goers, but also serve as a testament to the possibilities of sustainable and ecofriendly entertainment.”

This Patriotic Sky Spectacular will take place each night, July 5 through 7, and will include a drone show that promises to mesmerize audiences with a choreographed performance of lights and music, creating stunning aerial formations and dynamic visual displays.

The 2024 Stanislaus County Fair is scheduled from July 5 through14. Discounted Fair admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands, and tickets are available through July 4. Fair box office hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All concerts are free with a paid general admission ticket. Arena events are available at additional cost.
