San Diego County Fair

Family Funville Things to Do!

Family Funville logoThe San Diego County Fair has a special place for family fun — Family Funville, located in the racetrack infield. The emphasis here is on kids and activities the whole family will enjoy.

Most activities in this area are open all day until 9:00PM; exceptions are noted.

Family Funville has so much to see and do that we need two pages to explain it all. This page has information on entertainment, contests and the Kids Zone ride area; click for information on Family Funville exhibits (Creative Youth, Best of K-6 Schools, World of Horses and The Farm at Family Funville.)

This is information from the 2016 San Diego County Fair.

Please check back next spring, when we will have information on this attraction at the 2017 Fair!
