HOME*GROWN*FUN

Jun 11 - Jul 4, 2021

Oh, how we missed you last year!

We just couldn't let another summer come and go without celebrating San Diego and all of the wonderful food & agriculture, arts & talent, business & innovation, and all-around FUN of our community.

So while we're still masked up and six-feet apart, we're rolling up our sleeves and getting back to our roots for HOME*GROWN*FUN, presented by the San Diego County Fair.

Smaller in scale than the fair and limited in attendance, HOME*GROWN*FUN will offer a taste of your fair favorites–including shopping, food concessionaires, a Ferris wheel and carousel, agricultural-themed exhibits, demonstrations, contests and "edu-tainment" designed to educate and delight families looking to get outside for some real-life, in-person and down-home fun.

Let's get growing again, San Diego!
