The information below is from the 2019 Fair, and it will give you an idea of what to expect in 2020. Please check back soon!

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

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.

This is a free program. Also, each child receives a free Activity Book and a Reading Certificate. Children who read 10 books and have that verified by their teacher can present the certificate at the Fair for one day’s free admission.

This program continues to be absolutely free except for scheduled and confirmed tours canceled by the school after mid-March (please contact us directly for exact cut-off date). If there are any cancellations, schools will be billed a $200 cancellation fee per presentation. Please consult your school calendar before choosing dates and times.
