Held annually during the summer at the Del Mar Fairgrounds the San Diego County Fair, or the Del Mar Fare as the locals call it, is one of the most popular annual events in San Diego County. Over 1.5 million total visitors attend the San Diego Fair every year and are treated to a wide variety of rides, attractions, exhibits, and concerts, as well as some great fair food and drinks.
One of the main draws of the fair is the concert series, which features some of the biggest names in music. Great food is the staple of any fair and San Diego County Fair is no exception with over 100 food vendors serving up their delicacies to hungry crowds.
