Background

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Santa Clara County Fair is focusing on livestock exhibitions under the “Ag-Venture!” banner. Competitive exhibits including photography, quilts and art projects are on display in Fiesta Hall, and Little Hands on the Farm returns for children. A heritage exhibit displays historical objects related to the fair.

Contestants lined up under a white tent to have their goats judged during the Market Goat Show, where ribbons and championship belt buckles were handed out by judge Sue Hobby.

The Livestock Auction will be a hybrid event on the last day of the fair, Aug. 7, when animals will be auctioned live at the fairgrounds and live-streamed. The fair is free and open to the public.
