SUMMER SPROUTS HERE

June 11–July 4

(closed Mondays & Tuesdays)
Gates open 11am–9pm daily

Oh, how we missed you last year!

We just couldn’t let another summer come and go without celebrating San Diego and all of the wonderful food & agriculture, arts & talent, business & innovation, and all-around FUN of our community.

So while we’re still masked up and six-feet apart, we’re rolling up our sleeves and getting back to our roots for HOME*GROWN*FUN, presented by the San Diego County Fair.

Smaller in scale than the fair and limited in attendance, HOME*GROWN*FUN will offer a taste of your fair favorites–including shopping, food concessionaires, a Ferris wheel and carousel, agricultural-themed exhibits, demonstrations, contests and “edu-tainment” designed to educate and delight families looking to get outside for some real-life, in-person and down-home fun.

Let’s get growing again, San Diego!

HOME*GROWN*FUN on the Farm

Pacific Animal Productions takes us on an educational journey with some of the world’s most fascinating wildlife.

Agri-Land

Learn about California’s crops from cut flowers to coffee, and San Diego’s favorite fruit, the avocado–this magical place teaches us all about the fertile soil, the crops it produces, and the hard-working farmers who tend to it all, right here in our own backyard!

Carousel

Pick from a colorful, whimsical menagerie of equestrian and exotic animals, and saddle up for a spin on this merry-go-round guaranteed to delight kids of all ages.

Make & Takes

Daily interactive activities allow guests to not only make, but take the best kind of souvenir home with them!

Ferris Wheel

Nothing beats the 360º view from the tippy top of our Ferris wheel, the grand classic of carnival rides. Views span from the sparking blue Pacific down the Coast-to-Crest Trail!

Shopping

From your kitchen favorites like CutCo knives, Vitamix blenders and that simple salsa maker to the largest selection of toe rings you’ve seen just about anywhere, we’ve got two large shopping halls full of a mix of gadgets and gizmos a-plenty that you just can’t seem to find anywhere else!

Food

Whether you’re craving deep-fried favorites, smoky bar-b-que, sweets and treats, or something served on-a- stick, you’ll have more than thirty food concessionaires to choose from, so come hungry!

Strolling Entertainment

Two-step through the entrance gates to the welcoming sounds of the Jackstraws or Juicebox Jazz Trio, or be dazzled by Godfrey the Magician’s sleight of hand. Our strolling entertainers are here to surprise and delight guests of all ages.

Happy Day Pony Rides

For generations of San Diegans, saddling up on Happy Day Pony Rides is their first experience in equestrian athletics at the Fairgrounds!

Contests & Demos

Competitor’s wanted! We’re bringing on the competitions–and the prizes!–with daily contests for all ages and talents, ranging from floral arranging to bubble gum blowing.
