San Diego County Fair

Nominate Your Hometown Hero!

The Hometown Heroes program honors those inspirational and influential heroes we are fortunate enough to have in our community.



Hometown Heroes


Our Hometown Heroes include active duty or retired military, first responders, teachers, volunteers, or just all-around do-gooders who go above-and-beyond to have a positive impact on the people and organizations in which they come in contact.

Come see the Hometown Heroes Parade!

Thank you for your nominations! Come see the heroes you nominated in the Hometown Heroes Parade, at 1:00PM on July 4. In addition to our honored guests, the parade will include many of your favorite Fair entertainers, a Del Mar Fire Department truck, and a brigade of decorated golf carts. The Avenue of the Palms from the O'Brien Gate to the Fun Zone is the place to be!
