CONGRESSMAN KEVIN McCARTHY

“I always look forward to the Kern County Fair, a wonderful annual event that brings our community together, and I know this year’s fair will continue to live up to the high expectation of enjoyment and family fun. I always find it particularly heartwarming to see how excited our youngest fairgoers are with the games and attractions, and of course you can’t top the food!”


ASSEMBLYMAN RUDY SALAS

“The Kern County Fair is an amazing tradition where we can come together as a community for days of family-friendly fun. I always look forward to the Future Farmers of America showcase (FFA) to see the incredible talent of our FFA students from the Valley. These events illustrate the culture of our community and the unique strengths of Kern County that makes the Valley a special place to live and grow.”


ASSEMBLYMAN VINCE FONG

“Born and raised in Bakersfield, the Kern County Fair has always been a highlight to kick off the fall season. I always find myself enjoying the delicious food- kettle corn, corn dogs and even deep fried Oreos. I encourage everyone to make the fair a part of their family traditions.”


SUPERVISOR LETICIA PEREZ

“The Kern County Fair is one of the few times of the year that all of us, from the diversity of our individual communities, across the County, get to see how “Kern” we really all are.  It is the best of us on display as we make room for each other in a County wide community event—and find out that we are all waiting in line for another baked potato!  We can start from there, together.” 


SUPERVISOR ZACK SCRIVNER

“My family and I always look forward to this time of year.  The Kern County Fair is great fun with exciting rides, excellent music, entertaining exhibits and delicious food.  The Kern County Fair has something for everyone to enjoy.”


SUPERVISOR MIKE MAGGARD

“Cinnamon rolls, the Smokin’ Armadillos, and checking out the rodeo stock animals—all some of my favorite memories at the Great Kern County Fair.”


SUPERVISOR MICK GLEASON

“Looking forward to enjoying a lot of good food, visiting with friends, and seeing lots of kids and families enjoying this great event!”


SUPERVISOR DAVID COUCH

“I love the exhibits and the auction.  And I love the pickled tongue sandwiches, the corn dogs, and pretty much anything that’s fried!
