The San Diego County Fair is open through July 4. In the interest of public safety, activities involving direct animal interaction at the Fair have been suspended.

All guests are encouraged to wash their hands after any contact with animals or their living area, as well as prior to eating or drinking.

State civil service employees can get two $8 admissions to the Fair on three Fridays — June 7, 14 and 21, 2019 — by showing their State of California employee ID or paycheck stub at the Will Call window at our main Fair entrance (O’Brien Gate).

This offer is valid for civil service employees only. Employees of California colleges, universities and schools qualify for our School Staff Appreciation Days.
