Sacramento, Calif., (5/14/19) – The Great American Petting Zoo is a must-see attraction at the 2019 Sacramento County Fair. This petting zoo is truly unique because there are no barriers inside the enclosure. Once inside, the guests are free to pet, feed, and play with numerous animals. The farm contains 55 beautiful, friendly hand-raised animals including: Nubian and Alpine Goats, Boar Goats, miniature Pygmy Goats, llamas, Fallow Deer, Bennett Wallabies, Vietnamese Potbellied Pigs, Bantam Chickens, miniature Sicilian Donkeys, and miniature Call Ducks

Pamela Fyock, CEO of Sacramento County Fair says, “The Great American Petting Zoo provides the highest quality, professional animal attractions for our fairgoers. The kids not only have fun, but they learn important lessons caring for and appreciating all animals—and the adults have fun, too! It’s safe, clean and is always a Fair favorite. Children under 12 are always free, so we hope to see lots of families enjoying the Zoo during the Fair.”

The Great American Petting Zoo strives to be industry leaders in the health and welfare of animals, educating the public and keeping the American agricultural experience alive. This is one experience that cannot be missed! It will be open all day, every day for the duration of the Fair.
