San Mateo County Fair Returns

Get ready for your favorite fair foods sans drive thru! An 87-year tradition, the San Mateo County Fair will officially host the return of the county fair this June. Held from Saturday, June 5th to Sunday, June 13th, following all state and county health and safety guidelines, this return will be one of California’s first major public events since early 2020.

“The theme of the San Mateo County Fair is Where Tradition Meets Innovation, and we will certainly bring the favorite traditions of animals, pig races, BBQ, funnel cakes, carnival rides, and the Ferris Wheel back, with the innovations that provide a healthy and safe space for our community,” said Dana Stoehr, CEO of the San Mateo County Event Center. “The health and safety of our guests is our top priority,”

The fair will not operate on Monday, June 7th, and Tuesday, June 8th. They will be operating at a limited capacity to comply with governmental requirements and promote physical distancing. Modifications to this year’s Fair include a scheduled timed entry for all visitors, which allows the fair to maintain capacity limitations and adhere to the state’s reopening guidelines. All tickets will be sold online, and attendees will select an available time slot for arrival and digital tickets will be scanned at the gate to provide a touch-less experience. All guests will be mandated to wear masks while attending this event.
