San Diego County Fair Accessible Information

From parking to service animals and more

San Diego County Fair information on accessible parking, entrances, restrooms and more.

Accessible parking exceeding what is required by law is provided in our main parking lot off Jimmy Durante Boulevard with paid parking admission of $10.00. All parking is first-come, first-served. Free parking & accessible transportation are available at Horsepark every day that the Fair is open. This also is available at our off-site parking lots that operate on weekends.

One companion or personal assistant is admitted at the admission gate at no charge with the paid admission of the disabled person. (Please note: This courtesy does not extend to admission at concerts that require tickets or midway rides.)

Accessible entrances to the Fair are the O'Brien and West Gates. The O'Brien Gate is closest to accessible parking and off-site parking lot shuttles. The West Gate is where the North County Transit District buses stop. Wheelchair & electric scooter rental locations are at the O'Brien and Arena Gates. Motorized scooters may be reserved in advance. Guests with disabilities are permitted to bring in motorized scooters with three or more wheels to be used as a mobility device.

A map noting accessible routes and TDD locations is available at Information Booths and Guest Services. A private restroom large enough for a wheelchair plus a caregiver is available at Guest Services. Service animals are welcome at the Fair. Relief areas are designated with signs in four locations: on the west side of Bing Crosby Hall, between the hall and the Seaside Pavilion; Paddock area, behind the stage on the bark surface in the tunnel leading to the racetrack; in the Infield by the restrooms near the racetrack; and across from the southeast corner of the Livestock Barn.

Reasonable accommodations for most services can be provided with at least 72 hours of notice. Please allow at least two weeks' notice for American Sign Language interpreter service. If additional assistance is needed, please email Amy Billburg or call her at 858-792-4217.
