2020 San Diego County Fair Cancelled

Was cancelled by the 22nd District Agricultural Association's Board of Directors, decided on Tuesday April 14th. "Based on Governor Gavin Newsom’s press conference today, mass gatherings are not likely to be allowed for the foreseeable future. Therefore, we believe it is the responsible decision to postpone the San Diego County Fair to 2021," a post on the fair's website read.

Check the Calendar!
