The Del Mar Fairgrounds offers a fun, enthusiastic, and service-oriented working environment. If you would like to join our team and promote our renowned guest services, click the links below to find out more about our current job opportunities and how to apply.
Temporary and Seasonal Employment
Temporary employment opportunities are listed here. The majority of temporary jobs are for the San Diego County Fair, and are posted in the spring. Temporary/seasonal employment positions do not allow employees to have multiple jobs at the same time. Temporary/seasonal employees must decide which job to accept, if offered more than one position.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are retired with CalPERS benefits, please do NOT complete an application, as we are unable to hire you as a 119-day temporary employee due to CalPERS rules and regulations.
San Diego County Fair Vendor Jobs
Each year outside vendors offer employment opportunities at the San Diego County Fair. For these positions, you must apply directly with the commercial or food vendor. Job openings for 2017 will be posted twice, Friday, May 12; and Friday, May 26 (by the end of the business day).
