Are You Ready to Play?
“Game On!” is the theme for the 2013 San Diego County Fair! This summer promises to be filled with fun and games for 24 days. The fair will spotlight classic and nostalgic games we grew up with and show how games have evolved over the years. From board games and pinball to television, videos and computers, technology has enhanced the gaming culture beyond our wildest dreams.
Participation in the San Diego County Fair through Competitive Exhibits is a tradition that is truly the heart of the fair.
The San Diego County Fair just wouldn’t be the same without animals. You can see animals on display, farm equipment and popular shows.
It’s just not the fair without rides and games, and the San Diego County Fair has the best!
One of the main reasons people visit the San Diego County Fair is not only for traditional “fair fare” but also for upscale dining and food events.
You can find all sorts of products here that you just won’t find in stores. They will have all sorts of “shopper-tunities” for fairgoers.
The emphasis here is on kids and activities the whole family will enjoy.
Located on the northeast corner of the fairgrounds, an off-track wagering facility that features thoroughbred racing from major racetracks around the country and operates every day the fair is open, except Tuesdays.
Some of the coolest cars ever made — woodies, muscle cars and hot rods — will be displayed every day just inside the arena gate.
The free shopper shuttles to Del Mar and Solana Beach offer a break from the kids, a nice restaurant meal, or browsing in the shops and then a quick return, all without losing your parking space!
