Opening Day at the San Diego County Fair

~ June 8, 2022 ~

 

The San Diego County Fair will open Wednesday June 8, 2022, less than 1 month from now.

 

One of the nation’s largest, the San Diego County Fair runs through July 4th. Hours are 11 am until 10 pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and 11 am to 11 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

 

The fair is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays with the exception of the final day, July 4th. Hours on closing day are 11 am until 10 pm.

 

Each year the San Diego County Fair has an annual theme, and this year it’s “Heroes Reunite!”

 

The Del Mar Fairgrounds are famous for a wide range of events during the year, including trade expos and concerts. In addition to the County Fair, the fairgrounds may be best known for Thoroughbred Racing Season. Stay tuned for updates on the 2022 horse racing season.

 

The Del Mar Fairgrounds are just off the I-5 Freeway (Via de la Valle exit), at 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard. Call (858) 755-1161 for more information.

 

So what can you expect at the 2022 San Diego County Fair? There will be food concessions, shopping, games, rides, competitive exhibits and so much more.

 

There’s a great line-up for the Toyota Summer Concert Series at the grandstand center stage. And check out the live entertainment on multiple days at the Party at the Paddock.

 

Parking and admission tickets must be purchase in advance online. Tickets are on sale now. Keep in mind ticket sales will be limited each day and may sell out, so don’t delay. You select your day and preferred arrival time, but can stay as long as you wish once you enter.

 

Parking at the fairgrounds is limited; general parking is priced at $12 per vehicle. As previously noted, you must purchase your parking ticket in advance – no tickets are sold at the event.

 

You can expect heavier traffic around the fairgrounds, on the nearby side roads, the Coast Road/Route 101, and in particular on the 5 freeway near the Via de la Valle exit.

It's pretty popular, and you're right - San Diego is a beautiful city! Del Mar, too, for that matter.

You're right George Souto  The San Diego County Fair is a big one. Nice to see it back after the down-graded version last year!

Good morning, Jeff... I've never attended a county fair in my life... always think about doing so... the San Diego Fair sounds terrific (but I'm not flying out to attend). Are you planning to make an appearance?

That sounds like a fun event...  Are there public transportation options for attending? (I saw parking is a no-no unless you are registered ahead of time)

This seems like it might be almost as fun as going to Disneyland and last time I checked prices for Disneyland it seemed too expensive for me, haha.

Hi Jeff,

I always enjoyed going to the Del Mar Fairgrounds.  I have been at large vintage car shows and one time went to the race track.  Being close to the beach never hurts!

I've been to a few over the year but not sure we will go. Not into all the crowds.

Hi Kat Palmiotti 

Good question. There is off-site parking at a local highschool with shuttles, and the commuter rail train station is not far. In the past they had busses from the station to the fair grounds.

I get that Brian England  Disneyland has gotten pretty pricey. I can tell you the SD Fair is a LOT less $. But not nearly the number of rides to enjoy as at The Happiest Place on Earth!

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE® 

There's certainly alot of variety at the Fairgrounds. I've only been to the races once - on Opening Day - and it was great fun.
