Fair Shopping

Shopping is a popular activity at the San Diego County Fair, and it's no wonder: You can find all sorts of products here that you just won't find in stores. We have all sorts of "shopper-tunities," from hair clips to home accessories, "slicer-dicers" to spas.

Images of America: Del Mar Fairgrounds Images of America: Del Mar Fairgrounds, by Diane Y. Welch and B. Paul Welch, documents the rich history of the Del Mar Fairgrounds, a place that unites local communities in an arena attracting world-wide attention. Celebrities, politicians and the general public have all played a role in shaping this unique place. Rare and never-before-seen photographs tell the story of this world-class destination.

Local Shopping

Make a getaway while you're at the Fair—take a break from the kids, from family, from friends, for any reason—by taking the Shopper Shuttle to Del Mar or Solana Beach for a restaurant meal or browsing in fine shops. Make it an opportunity to discover the local flavor! (Plus, you won't lose your parking space, and the shuttle is absolutely free.)
