Equal access information

Learning, business, community, and fun for everyone

The Solano County Fairgrounds strives to offer event settings that meet the needs of all its guests. This guide provides an overview of the services and facilities offered to patrons with disabilities and special needs.

Disabled access

Admission booths, exhibit buildings, restrooms, entertainment venues and vendor booths are accessible to patrons who use wheelchairs. Staff members are also available for assistance.

Parking

Parking spaces are reserved for patrons with disabilities in close proximity to all admission gate entrances with easy access. Parking rates vary depending on the type of event and other factors. Please refer to our Event Calendar for individual event parking rates. Please remember to display your ID placard in your vehicle’s windshield before parking in any space for people with disabilities.

Restrooms

Restroom facilities on the property can accommodate disabled guests and guests in wheelchairs. The most comfortable restrooms are the ones located on the main concourse, near McCormack Hall. During the annual Solano County Fair, please see the SC Fair map, available in the printed Event Schedule or on Information Booths, for all restroom locations.

Performances

Accessible seats in all of our venues can be reserved through the event organizer, as available. Email us at contactus@scfair.org to reserve accessible seats during our annual fair, and we will do our very best to accommodate you. For shows not requiring a reserved seat/ticket, Security/Guest Services staff is available to assist guests. For year-round events, please contact the event promoter directly.

ADA ticket fraud

ADA ticket fraud includes, but is not limited to, the misrepresentation of a disability. Management reserves the right to take appropriate action regarding misrepresentation, which may result in relocation, revocation of tickets or ejection.

Smoking

By state law and in the interest of public health, smoking shall not be permitted in or within 20 feet of any State of California building, including, but not limited to Exposition Hall, McCormack Hall, County Building, Solano Race Place/Gibson Hall, Livestock Building, Mick Freese Memorial Sheep Barn, Administration Building, Concert Arena grandstand, and bleacher seating areas. This policy includes the use of electronic cigarettes, vaporizers and oil/wax pens.

During SCFA-produced events (i.e. Solano County Fair, Youth AG Day) smoking and the use of electronic cigarettes, vaporizers and oil/wax pens is prohibited.

Year-round event promoters may adopt more restrictive policies at their discretion, and with the prior approval of SCFA.

Service animals

Service dogs are welcome at the Solano County Fairgrounds, provided they are on a leash or lead at all times. A member of your party must remain with the animal. Currently, the ADA provides no definition of therapy, comfort or emotional support service animals and as such are not considered service animals and are not permitted at the Solano County Fairgrounds, except as specified below.

Animals, other than guide, signal, or service dogs are not permitted on the grounds or inside buildings, unless the event is animal related.

When animals are used as part of an event, handlers must be in full compliance with all applicable laws, ordinances, and regulations related to their humane treatment. Persons responsible for animals on the Fairgrounds must use every precaution to ensure the safety of the people attending and/or participating in the event.

Exceptions: Dogs, cats, or other domestic animals may be kept by RV users, but shall never be permitted to roam. They must be penned or on leash at all times. Persons having dogs, cats or other domestic animals on the grounds must use every care to assure the safety of all visitors on the Fairgrounds. Anyone in violation of this policy will be asked to remove the animal(s) from the grounds.

All sanitary needs for permitted animals will be the sole responsibility of the Renter (example: collecting and properly disposing of animal waste). Sanitary needs for guide, signal, or service dogs will be the patron's responsibility.
