Mad About the Fair is the theme of the San Diego County Fair opening at 4:00PM on Friday, June 3 and continuing until Monday, July 4. (The Fair is closed on Mondays, except July 4, and the first two Tuesdays.)
We plan to fuse the Fair into a grand-scale tea party featuring the renowned Lewis Carroll classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland fused with influences from steampunk, cosplay, great literature, whacky machinery, and all the fun and magic you have come to expect at the San Diego County Fair.
Get ready for outlandish landscapes, crazy rides, unique foods, and a raft of festivals and enthralling entertainment. Appearances by your favorite Wonderland characters and more will start your summer of "adventure and imagination."
Did you know the San Diego County Fair was visited by Food Network host Anthony Anderson? The intrepid host brought his appetite and humor to the Del Mar Fairgrounds in a segment titled "San Diego on a Stick," an episode for the series "Carnival Cravings."

The San Diego County Fair is a smoke-free and vapor-free event.
