"Race to the Fair"
May 25 – 29, 2017


Circus Imagination

Circus Imagination involves 20 to 25 children per show who actively dress up and join the circus. Old-fashioned fun rekindles educational play in the minds of children. Circus Imagination requires no skill or talent and the experience leaves children with a strong sense of imagination, resourcefulness and creativity. From Tina the Tightrope Walker who climbs a make-believe ladder 100 feet in the air, to Zazelle the human cannon, the audience is captured in spellbound amazement

Rawhide Railroad

The Rawhide Express is the finest custom built electric powered touring train around. This environmentally safe train carries fair-going families in comfort and style and provides a great view of the fair. You can listen to a personal narration of the amazing items on the fairgrounds as we acquaint you with all the fine foods, drinks, shows, animals, and commercial vendors. Cowboy Ken and his Rawhide Express have been receiving rave reviews performing at fairs since 1995.

Farm Babies

Farm Babies is fun for the whole family and a great educational opportunity for kids of all ages. Not only does the exhibit feature many different types of farm animals and their babies, there are trained docents from Chico State and Butte College to answer all of your questions and share interesting facts.

Hilby, Skinny German Juggling Boy

Best described as a show without boundaries, Hilby is the living proof that being German doesn't mean you can not be funny. While being an expert in juggling all sorts of objects and subjects as well as countless circus and variety skills (such as Unicycling, ropewalking, unsupported ladder, fire manipulations and eating, balancing stunts and the list goes on and on), he really gets his audience involved and creates magical and hilarious moments through their participation. Watch out for catapults, marshmallows, lots of velcro and the bowling-ball of terror. Hilby has training in modern dance and mime and his body is as expressive as the spoken words he speaks. Poetry in motion, a fusion of an epileptic fit, and .... Yes all that and more..... the long and short of it is that you will love this Skinny German Juggle Boy!

Incredible Hypnotist Richard Barker

Originally from the United Kingdom, he has spent the last 15 years entertaining thousands of people from the Cayman Islands to Las Vegas. His quick wit and charm have made him a crowd favorite.  He can hypnotize people on the spot with both his British accent and impressive feats of hypnosis.  Barker says, "I truly believe the people who volunteer to come on stage are my guests. They are the stars of the performance. I am merely the stage director, casting the right person for that part."  Richards show will have you intrigued, amazed, and on the edge of your seat. Most of all, Richard will leave you laughing. Once under his spell, you are taken on a hypnotic adventure that you will remember for years to come whether you are an active participate on stage or watching from the best seat in the house!

Steve the Pretty Good - Comedy Magic

The Steve the Pretty Good show takes the classics of magic and gives them a unique and funny twist and then transforms his audience into hilarious magical assistants. Does someone get sawn in half? You bet. Can he make some one float? Absolutely. Will people be amazed and laugh, a lot? No doubt about it.

Swifty Swine Racing Pigs

If you've never been to a pig race, you're in for a real treat! Swifty and his friends don't do it for the money, what they really want is that Oreo cookie, waiting on a silver platter at the finish line!

They run as fast as their little legs can take 'em, and then it's back to nap time to be ready for the next race!
