There is a place, like no place on earth. A land full of wonder. . .
Some say to survive it you need to be as mad as a hatter. Which luckily, I am!
Mad About the Fair is the theme of the San Diego County Fair, and it's 26 days of wild, wacky, whimsical, wonderous fun!
From June 3 through July 4, join us for San Diego's biggest annual event!
You'll love our grand-scale tea party featuring the renowned Lewis Carroll classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, fused with influences from steampunk, cosplay, great literature, wacky machinery, and all the fun and magic you have come to expect.
The Fair will be closed on Monday, June 27. Please see the General Information page for specific information on hours and dates.
Eric Gilliland Is Our
Millionth Guest !!!
When Eric Gilliland of Rancho Bernardo walked through O'Brien Gate about 5:00PM on Saturday, carrying his daughter, Claire, he became the 2016 Millionth Guest. Eric not only became an instant celebrity, but he was showered with confetti and loads of gifts from the San Diego County Fair. Eric came with his family, which also included his wife, Stephanie, and baby daughter, Brooklyn. Congratulations, Eric, and thanks for coming!
