Calistoga City Council to continue Napa County Fairgrounds discussion Sept. 7

Tubbs building

The Tubbs Exhibit Building at the Napa County Fairgrounds in Calistoga was named after Chapin F. Tubbs, who was a fair director from 1936 to 1947.

After being cut short in a previous meeting due to a power outage on Aug. 17, the Calistoga City Council will continue its conversation Sept. 7 on the feasibility of purchasing the entire Napa County Fairgrounds.

No specific staff report was presented and no recommendations or decisions were made at the Aug. 17 meeting. 

Last year, the city was set to purchase 34.3 acres of the fairgrounds — everything except the golf course. The $7.3 million deal was nearly inked in April 2020 when the economic fallout from the pandemic crashed the bond market and the city’s financial outlook took a dive.

Comments may be emailed to councilmembers at prior to the meeting. 

Calistoga High's Isaac Garcia, Edgar Garcia and Yuliani Caballero talk about the upcoming football season, the Wildcats' first in two years.
