Ventura SummerFest 2021

Firework shows on the 4th of July. Tequila and Tacos the weekend before last. We seem to have enjoyed a bit of a return to normal here in California lately. Unfortunately, the Delta variant of COVID-19 put mask mandates back in place for everyone when indoors. Sadly, officials canceled the annual Ventura County Fair this year. But, visitors may satisfy their “fair tooth” with the Ventura SummerFest 2021 Carnival instead.

Unfortunately, organizers canceled this year's Ventura County Fair. However, you can enjoy some of the fair's perks (like carnival rides and fun fair food) at Ventura SummerFest 2021 from Aug 4th to 15th.

What: Ventura SummerFest 2021
Where: Ventura Fairgrounds (10 W Harbor Blvd)
When: Aug 4th to Aug 15th, 3 pm to 10 pm Mon through Fri, 12 pm to 10 pm Sat & Sun
Admission: Free (tickets required for carnival rides)

Ventura SummerFest 2021

Search Ventura County homes for saleIf we cannot enjoy the Ventura County Fair this year, at least we get the next best thing…SummerFest! Sure, the size of the fair we are used to will not be happening. No cattle auction or exhibits this year. And the big baking and crafts competitions will not take place either. But the heart of the fair lives on. Guests get to enjoy carnival rides and games as well as the amazing fair food usually reserved for things like the county fair. And that’s what most of us go to the fair for anyway, right?

Ticket Info

Parking runs $15 per vehicle. But it costs you nothing to enter into SummerFest. If you wish to ride the carnival rides, you must pay for tickets. The amount of tickets required varies from ride to ride (anywhere from three to eight each). Tickets cost $1 each. Or you may purchase them in bulk at $20 for 24. But if you go to Kastl Amusements’ online box office before midnight on August 3rd, you may purchase them at a huge discount of 40 ride tickets for just $25. You receive a 37.5% discount off the regular price of a ticket this way. That means more money for fair food! Yay!
