The Alameda County Fairgrounds has dedicated over 2 acres of land to The Farm.

Now, the Alameda County Fair Foundation is embarking on a capital campaign to raise the funds needed to build. Grants, industry partnerships, in-kind donations, and sponsorships will be key to the timely construction of this amazing facility.

Dedication opportunities are now available for the first phases of The Farm. Contact to discuss opportunities for naming rights.

And of course, the ongoing support of our community is essential. Donate now, in any amount:
