San Diego County Fair Returns This June 8 Through July

June 5, 2022

After skipping in 2020 and hosting a scaled-down version in 2021, the San Diego County Fair returns at full force with a superhero theme this June 8 through July 4. 

The 2022 San Diego County Fair is back after a two-year hiatus with a celebration of epic proportions. Superheroes are the stars of this year's fair, and the annual summertime kick-off will bring back exciting carnival rides, delicious foods, animal showcases, art installations, photography exhibits, special events, concerts and so much more. 

The San Diego County Fair begins on Wednesday, June 8 and will take place through the 4th of July. The attraction is open every day except Mondays and Tuesdays starting at 11am. Tickets for adults age 13-61 are $20 on weekends and $15 on weekdays ($17 and $12 for seniors & children age 6-12). Children 5 and younger get in free anytime. This year's fair is cashless, and tickets and parking passes must be purchased online in advance. Those interested in maximizing their carnival rides experience should look into buying a FunPass or visiting the fair on Pepsi Pay-One-Price Ride Days on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  

Musical acts performing at this year's San Diego County Fair Summer Concert Series include Sam Hunt, The Goo Goo Dolls, Shaggy, 311, John Fogerty and many more. There will also be special events like the Toast of the Coast Wine Festival, San Diego International Beer Festival, and Distilled Spirit and Cocktail Festival.

The San Diego County Fair takes place from Wednesday, June 8, through Monday, July 4, at The Del Mar Fairgrounds, located at 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard in San Diego's Del Mar community. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit
