On the Infield: 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 (including Creative Youth and Best of K-6 Schools), The Farm at Family Funville and the San Diego Pavilion.
