Oz-Some Concerts Abound at the 2019 San Diego County Fair

Del Mar CA— Talk about a whirlwind of exciting concerts scheduled on the Grandstand, Paddock and Solid Gold stages throughout the run of the 2019 San Diego County Fair, presented by Albertsons|Vons!

Pitbull, aka “Mr. Worldwide,” and the fresh sound of country’s Jake Owen are the latest additions to round out the Fair’s Toyota Summer Concert Series. Tickets for Pitbull go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, and tickets for Jake Owen go on sale 10 a.m. Saturday, both at Ticketmaster.com. These two concerts are in addition to an exciting mix of other Oz-some concerts already on sale including Toby Keith, Smokey Robinson, Jim Gaffigan, Jeff Dunham, Christian Nodal and many more. The 2019 San Diego County Fair will feature 27 nights of entertainment on the Corona Grandstand Stage May 31-July 4. This year’s magical theme of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” based on L. Frank Baum’s classic tale, will give visitors the chance to leave the ordinary world behind the minute they walk down the yellow brick road at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
