The San Diego County Fair
at the Del Mar Fairgrounds
The San Diego County Fair offers a unique and special opportunity to reach almost half the population of San Diego County
in a single event.
Marketers can interact with over 1.5 million people in a relaxed and fun environment. No other San Diego County event comes close to matching the attendance of the Fair during a three-week period. Attendance at the 2015 Fair was the second-highest in Fair history with 1,503,538 visitors — making this the 5th largest fair in North America, and the largest County Fair in the U.S.
The San Diego County Fair has been among North America's top 10 fairs in attendance for nearly two decades. The Fair has been held annually since 1880.

The San Diego County Fair is held on the Del Mar Fairgrounds, 20 minutes north of downtown San Diego. The Fairgrounds, which is owned by the State of California and operated by the 22nd District Agricultural Association, is located adjacent to San Diego's three most affluent communities —Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe and Solana Beach. The grounds are located west of Interstate 5 at the Via de la Valle exit, less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean.
