In the Community

For many San Diegans, a day of fun at the fair or playing the ponies at the race meet is an annual summer tradition. But the team at the Del Mar Fairgrounds works year-round to live up to our mission of connecting our community through shared interests, diverse experiences, and service to one another in an inclusive, accessible, and safe place with an emphasis on entertainment, recreation, agriculture, and education.

Here you’ll find more information on the projects and activities happening around the ‘grounds.
