Whether you’re new to San Diego or have lived here for years, one event you can’t help, but take part in is the San Diego County Fair. 24 days of food, fun, and festivities for all ages.

Bring the family out to get up close and personal with farm animals and farm equipment. You can even watch some of these animals compete for prizes. Get your picture taken with a giant pig or pet a goat.

If animals aren’t your thing, there’s plenty of shopping throughout the fair. You’ll get great discounts on all kinds of items and can even enter to win great prizes and coupons at some of the vendor booths. Get tips on how to care for your houseplants and stock up on handmade goods before the holiday rush.

Play games, win prizes, and ride on classic fair attractions such as the ferris wheel, meery go round, and more.

It wouldn’t be the fair without fair food. Grab a funnel cake, try some fried bacon, snack on popcorn, fries, and chicken strips, or check out some of the healthier options on hand. The wine and beer festivals and tastings are always a big hit during the fair. This year, there’s even a bacon festival for all you meat-lovers.

Stay late and enjoy musical performances from artists like REO Speedwagon, Train, Switchfoot, Colbie Caillat, and Martina McBride, among others.

This year’s theme is “Game On”, the celebration of games past and present. Are you game?

Tickets can be purchase online or at a discount from participating Albertsons
