Know Before You Go

  • Parking areas are first come, first serve. If a General Parking area is full, guests will be rerouted to the closest available General Parking area.
  • Oversized vehicles, such as RVs, are not permitted. Vehicles must be no longer than 27 feet, so they are able to fit in a single parking space.
  • Parking fees apply to motorcycles as well as vehicles. Motorcycles have a designated parking area in the Main Lot.
  • Free trams service the Preferred and on-site General Parking lots, and run continuously, delivering guests to the O’Brien Gate (main Fair entrance).
    Free shuttle service begins at 9:00 a.m. at Horsepark and 10:00 a.m. at Torrey Pines lot and run continuously, delivering guests to the West Gate entrance and O’Brien Gate.
  • Every lot, both on-site and off-site, has parking for disabled guests. Trams and shuttles are equipped for wheelchairs and guests with disabilities.
  • No smoking, drinking or eating on the trams and shuttles.
