Enjoy the smell of freshly roasted sweet corn and wafts of funnel cake in the air, and don’t miss the views atop the Ferris Wheel, plus there’ll even be pig races! With 15+ food concessions and 60+ commercial vendors, we can’t wait to have a corn dog in one hand and a turkey leg in the other!

NEW this year! San Francisco Bazaar (@sfbazaar) joins forces with the San Mateo County Fair for the first curated handmade market in 2022 (June 4-5 & June 11-12)! SF Bazaar will be handpicking talented art, craft, and food makers to bring locally made and indie spirit to the fair.

Tickets are selling online HERE, 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.

Presented in partnership with the San Mateo Daily Journal, the San Mateo County Fair is happy to bring back Senior Day at the fair on Wednesday, June 8 from 11am to 3pm.
