June 13, 2021 (Del Mar) The 2021 San Diego County Fair, titled “Home*Grown*Fun,” reopened with a modified event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, after cancellation last summer.
Opening day, June 11, drew approximately 8,000 attendees, according to the fair’s marketing representative Ashley Colburn.
Swine racing and the Extreme Dog show were the shows to watch on opening day but more entertainment, contests, kiddie rides, and other events are to come after June 15, when the state abolishes the COVID-19 tier system. Any changes in mask/facial covering mandates remains to be determined.
