“Game on!” is the theme for the 2013 San Diego County Fair! The summer of 2013 promises to be filled with fun and games galore for 24 days. The Fair will spotlight classic and nostalgic games we grew up with and show how games have evolved over the years. From board games and pinball, to television, videos and computers, technology has enhanced the gaming culture beyond our wildest dreams.

From nationally known entertainers to animal and motorsports shows, the San Diego County Fair is non-stop entertainment, from the time the gates open until late into the night. Most entertainment is free with Fair admission!
