Power-Packed Theme and Dates Announced for 2020 San Diego County Fair

Del Mar CA— Heroes, unite! The 2020 San Diego County Fair, presented by Albertsons|Vons, will take you up, up and away to a summer full of action-packed fun.

The theme, dates and logo for the 2020 San Diego County Fair were unanimously approved today at the monthly 22nd District Agricultural Association Board of Directors meeting at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

Superheroes are the stars of this year’s Fair, so embrace your inner hero and show off your super powers June 5-July 5 (closed on Mondays). You can soar through the air on adrenaline-pumping carnival rides, strike a power pose with your favorite superheroes, taste your way through the Fair’s superfoods, discover entertainment surprises around every corner, learn the science and history of being a superhero and meet real-life community heroes who put Clark Kent to shame.

“There is so much to love about being a hero,” said Katie Mueller, deputy general manager of the Del Mar Fairgrounds. “Whether it’s kids in costumes imagining their superpowers to the real heroes who keep our communities safe and secure, this year’s Fair is all about discovering the hero within, and creating memorable experiences for the whole family. Everything’s going to pack a punch – from the world-class entertainment and exciting mix of new experiences to hero-themed foods and interactive superpower exhibits.”


Not everybody needs a cape to be a hero. Just ask our Community Heroes who make a difference everyday by going out of their way to improve the lives of others. Community Heroes are ordinary people who take extraordinary measures to make the world a better place. We’ll be featuring local heroes throughout the run of the Fair who rise to the occasion to help their community members.

If you know a Community Hero, we want to hear from you! Maybe it’s a mentor, volunteer, veteran, first responder or just overall do-gooder! Nominate your hero at sdfair.com/heroes!


It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Hall of Heroes – an interactive theme exhibit on a heroic scale! Come and test your superpowers with interactive physical challenges, learn about superheroes who first bound from the pages of comic books straight into a cultural phenomenon in the 1930s, stare wide-eyed at a Batmobile replica and discover your unique natural superpower in the Fair’s upcoming theme exhibit. Community heroes will be honored in the Hall of Heroes, and you can even learn how to unleash the superhero inside yourself!
