San Diego's annual county fair is the largest fair in California, offering a variety of food, entertainment, exhibits, rides & games throughout the beautiful and historical Del Mar Fairgrounds in the oceanfront village of Del Mar.
Join us for the 2017 San Diego County Fair, presented by Albertsons|Vons, as we present "Where the West is FUN!"
There's a new sheriff in town and it's you, Partner. Grab your cowboy hat, pull on your boots, and ride on over to this year's San Diego County Fair as we celebrate the legendary rough-and-tumble Wild, Wild West. Horses are man's best friend out here in the West, where you can learn how to saddle up, rope and ride-em' cowboy. Try your hand at panning for gold, or set up camp out on the prairie and tell tales 'round the campfire. When you're feelin' parched, mosey on over to the Main Street Saloon and sip on a tall sarsaparilla while you try your luck at the poker table playing against the infamous scallywags and desperados of the Old West. Explore an old stagecoach, but hide your valuables or you might get held up by scurrilous outlaws like Billy the Kid, Jesse James or Black Bart! Meet the rowdy women of the west, like Calamity Jane and "Little Sure Shot" Annie Oakley. Hey howdy hey, 2017 is gonna be the rootinest, tootinest Fair in the whole durn valley! June 2 - July 4 (closed Mondays except July 3 and the first three Tuesdays).
The San Diego County Fair offers all of the deep fried-food-on-a-stick, rides, animals, and games you've experienced at other state and county fairs, but is also known for world-class exhibits in fine art, photography, woodworking, jewelry/gems & minerals, and home & hobby, and the Paul Ecke Jr. Flower & Garden Show...not to mention an unsurpassed view of the Pacific Ocean from the Ferris Wheel! The Toyota Summer Concert Series at the San Diego County Fair features nationally recognized entertainment every night; the entertainment lineup is usually announced in late March. With an additional eight stages located throughout the grounds, you're sure to find a band, dance troupe, DJ or comedian to suit your fancy!
