Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — The gates swung open at the Mother Lode Fair Thursday afternoon.

After taking a forced year off due to COVID-19, the 2021 event runs through Sunday. The theme is “Working Hands and Cattle Brands.”

A note to anyone coming out for the Grandstand entertainment Sunday, Fair Manager Ken Alstott reports that the planned Demolition Derby has been canceled, and it is replaced with a Monster Truck event. The show will get underway at 6pm. Trucks on hand will include the Terminator, Cyclops, Playing for Keeps and Survivor.

Meanwhile, truck and tractor pulls are on tap for Friday and Saturday in the grandstand. The fair itself is open from 3-11pm each day.
