2018 San Diego County Fair Opens on Friday June 1st
Friday June 1st is a big day.
It’s TGIF, of course, but more importantly it’s Opening Day at the 2018 San Diego County Fair in Del Mar. The nation’s largest County Fair runs through July 4 (the fair does not operate on Mondays and Tuesdays EXCEPT July 2nd and July 3rd).
The San Diego County Fair, sponsored by Albertsons and Vons, always has a theme; this year it's “How Sweet it Is!"
The Del Mar Fair Grounds are famous for a wide range of events throughout the year, including trade expos and concerts, and besides the annual county fair are probably best known for the Thoroughbred Racing Season (in 2018 races are July 18 through September 3).
The Del Mar Fair Grounds are located just off the 5 Freeway (Via de la Valle exit), at 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard. Call for information at 858-755-1161.
The San Diego County Fair offers everyone a wide range of exhibits and attractions (truly something for all interests), rides and games, lots of animals, a very busy and diverse concert schedule, and abundant food and drink options that will suit just about every taste and budget.
Tickets can be ordered online. If spending just 1 day at the fair is not enough for you, for extra savings why not indulge in a Season Pass for $28 which allows admission for all 26 days of the San Diego County Fair.
Parking at the fairgrounds is $15; $25 for preferred parking. There are offsite locations, too.
Everyone living in the area is aware of how ugly the traffic can get during fair time, on the nearby side roads including the Coast Road/Route 101, and in particular on the 5 freeway heading north and south near the Via de la Valle exit. And you should expect it will be even worse than usual at rush hour later in the day. So plan accordingly, whether traveling to the fair grounds or commuting north and south, especially around rush hour and on weekends.
