We were there today. The 2 buildings were not quite full. A wide variety of items and talents. I found 2 vendors that suited me and I purchased multiple items from them.

Many vendors were taking credit cards. Nice to know. ATM machine is available.

Food was wicked expensive as usual; the vendors say the fairgrounds take a very high percent so their prices need to be high. Picnic tables were in the shade.

Entertainment was fun and ongoing. Seats were unfortunately in the sun.

Valley Humane Society has shaded tables for free crafts for the kiddos near the entrance. Also near the entrance, the VHS is operating a parcel check if you don't want to take your new purchases completely out to the parking lot. Today we were able to park very close.

I don't think you can be let off at the Yellow Gate and walk through the fairgrounds since it's fenced off. FYI. Parking is the usual $8. Don't be confused by all the cars that will be going in the further north gate for the drop-off recycling program on Saturday.
