School Tours for K-3 Students

School tours bring the San Diego County Fair to your classroom! This free program is open to K-3 classes and takes place in April. Fair staff will present a fun assembly with animals, games, puzzles and stories, and give each child an Activity Book.

The Fine Print

(April 3, 2020): In light of the recent directives from the governor’s office and the San Diego County Office of Education to continue distance teaching and learning, we have decided to transition our School Tours and Plant Grow Eat programs to a virtual experience.

Each spring these educational programs involve more than 40,000 students in San Diego County. Our greatest hope is to reach even more students with these virtual programs, so that even more students learn where their food comes from and the importance of agriculture.

This page has our School Tours video and Activity Learning Book, which includes our Reading Certificate.

Stay strong, San Diego, and please reach out if we can help you in any other way.

Fair staff present a fun and educational assembly using animals, games, puzzles and stories. Each child will receive an Activity Book and a Reading Certificate that when completed, gives them free admission to a day at the Fair.

Animals that will be on tour for 2020 are a shelter dog, a python and a hedgehog.

This is a free program.

This program continues to be absolutely free except for scheduled and confirmed tours cancelled by the school after a certain date (please contact us directly for exact cut-off date). Schools will be billed a $200 cancellation fee per presentation. Please consult your school calendar before choosing dates and times.

Get in touch online or call us at (858) 755-1161, ext. 2404.
