SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — After returning to full scale in 2022 with its heroic motif, the San Diego County Fair is coming back in 2023 with a more adventurous and enterprising festival.
The theme is "Get Out There!" and the fair starts on Wednesday, June 7, and ends on the Fourth of July. Considering the summer camp theme, there will be competitive Best-of-Show exhibits where fairgoers can show off their outdoor and nature skills.
Guests will also be able to learn about local agriculture from food to fiber to flowers.
On Opening Day, Wednesdays & Thursdays, and Sundays, the fair will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. On Fridays & Saturdays, the fair will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. It will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays during June.
It may be rainy outside, but we're over here planning for summer fun!
