The San Diego County Fair has a special place for family fun — the Infield. The emphasis here is on kids and activities the whole family will enjoy. Like the rest of the Fair, the entire Infield is a smoke-free zone.

It's Magic—When it comes to top-flight magical entertainment, the 2013 San Diego County Fair rivals Hollywood's famous Magic Castle. We have more than 200 magical events during our 24-day run: kids' shows, family shows, the Do-It-Yourself Magic Show; two daily stage hypnosis shows by the world famous Mark Yuzuik; and Abra-KID-Abra, our celebated magic camp. At Abra-KID-Abra , we not only teach magic, the kids get to take it home with them! And, of course, it's all free, once you've entered the magical kingdom of the San Diego County Fair.
