Our Commitment To Accessibility

alamedacountyfair.com strives to meet the accessibility standards promulgated by the World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 AA. (https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/wcag/) We engage an accessibility consultant on a regular basis in order to assist us in ensuring that our digital presence is in conformance with the WCAG 2.2 AA.
If you need assistance in using any of the features of this site, or have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of this site, please contact us by phone at 925.426.7600, or by e-mail here.

We regularly review our site (internally and independently) to achieve best practices in web accessibility.
In addition to our internal and external review program (including use of AccessiBe) we invite feedback from all users in order to improve accessibility.
As a result of our commitment to accessibility, we believe we not only meet but exceed the digital accessibility requirements imposed by Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Unruh Act and the Disabled Persons Act.
