Looking for a fun way to ring in the new year? Try New Year’s Eve at the Fair, sponsored by the Yolo County Fair Heritage Foundation.
The event will run from 7 p.m. Dec. 31 until the wee hours of New Year’s Day in Waite Hall at the Yolo County Fairgrounds, on Gum Avenue in Woodland. The evening includes a no-host bar, appetizers and desserts, dancing with DJ Tim Simmons, raffle prizes, a silent auction and bingo.
Tickets are $20 each or $150 for a table of eight, and are available at The Gifted Penguin, 716 Main St., Suite A in Woodland, or National Real Estate, 296 W. Main St. in Woodland. Advance tickets also may be purchased by calling Ann at 530-662-1235 or by emailing the Heritage Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A limited number of tickets will be sold at the door, for $25.
“As you ring in the new year with your friends, you will be contributing to the refurbishing projects of the fairgrounds,” a news release said. “We are privileged in Yolo County to have the fairgrounds, which continue to provide a venue for an annual fair along with the many other outreach activities that this facility is used for.”
Foundation members say funds raised will go toward updating the grounds, taking some of the burden off of the fair operations themselves.
