Fairgrounds and Outdoor Arenas

Many of the best shows and memorable experiences within Monterey County can be found right at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center. Twenty-two wooded acres offer the perfect space and seclusion for the activities found within the grounds. Two arenas are located there as well.

The smallest has a 2,000 person capacity, and the larger seats up to 5,850 visitors. Vendors and typical fair games offer delectable treats and the chance at winning a great prize or two.

The arenas themselves play host to organized and often once-in-a-lifetime events such as rodeos, modern concerts, and even the Monterey Jazz Festival. So come one, come all and have the time of your life.
