Lost and Found
If you lost something at the San Diego County Fair...
858-794-1124. You must leave a voicemail message. Be sure to:
Let us know if you have filed a Lost Item report, and if you did, tell us on what date and what the report number is. If we mailed you a card, let us know that and what you think we might have of yours.
Describe the lost item, using as much detail as you can, including the date you attended the Fair. (See examples below.)
Speak clearly. When you leave your name and phone number, speak slowly enough that we can write down your phone number. Spell your name if you think that will help us to find your records.
If you lost a cell phone, please include the phone brand (such as Samsung, iPhone, etc.) and the phone service (such as AT&T or Verizon), as well as any other information that will help identify your phone (such as distinctive case or custom decoration).
If you lost keys, please include information such as an approximate number of keys; whether they are car, home or office keys; whether there is a key ring decorative item, and if so, describe it; and other detailed information that will help us identify which set of lost keys are yours.
How to claim your item after the Fair has ended on July 4, 2016
You can visit the Marketing Office at the Fairgrounds July 6-8 to check for or claim a lost item. It is best to call ahead (858-794-1124) to be sure someone is available to help you. The Guest Services office will be closed on Tuesday, July 5, so staff can move from its seasonal office. It is scheduled to close for the season on Friday, July 8.
After July 8, you can still check for an item by leaving a message at 858-794-1124. Messages are checked periodically. Unclaimed items are kept until about September 1, and are then donated to charity. We strongly recommend you check for your item by July 8.
