DEL MAR, Calif. (May 29, 2019) – When it comes to putting on Oz-some multicultural festivals, there’s truly no place like the 2019 San Diego County Fair, which opens Friday and runs through July 4!

All the festival fun kicks off Saturday with the ninth annual Out at the Fair® festival. This family-friendly LGBTQ+ festival kicks off Pride Month with a full day of music, entertainment and special exhibits in the Paddock, featuring Effie Passero from American Idol season 14, and headliner Dev. Standup comedians will take the stage at the Turf Club during the LGBTQ+ Comedy Show (21+), while comedian Jim Gaffigan performs on the Corona Grandstand Stage. “I’m proud to perform at San Diego County Fair's Out at the Fair day,” Gaffigan said.

Our day-long Asian Festival on June 15 is a celebration of Asian and Pacific Islander culture that will feature entertainment in the Paddock, with performers representing China, India, Japan, the Philippines, Korea, Hawaii, Polynesia, and Vietnam. Traditional and popular entertainment will be featured, along with martial arts demonstrations, specialty drinks, and local non-profit organizations. Smokey Robinson performs that day at the Corona Grandstand Stage.

The Fair’s long-running Gospel Festival is on June 22. Different types of gospel music – from traditional to contemporary – will be featured on stages throughout the Fairgrounds. The day’s inspirational entertainment includes local, regional and national artists with The Clark Sisters and The Walls Group finishing out the day at 7 p.m. headlining the 15th Annual Gospel Festival, part of the Toyota Summer Concert Series.

Latin-themed entertainment is part of every Sunday at the San Diego County Fair. The rich traditions of Mexican culture are highlighted with special performances on the Plaza de Mexico Stage. Mexican artisans, games, contests and other activities and attractions fill Fiesta Village in Family Funville. There is a popular Hispanic artist/band on the Corona Grandstand Stage every Sunday night and an added show on June 5.
