Families can also participate in contests, and watch entertainers on the Albertson’s stage all day long. Talented chefs will showcase their recipes on the San Diego Pavilion, and there will be wine tasting each day from 4 to 5pm.
The County Fair will have many famous musical guests, including Demi Lovato, Switchfoot, Weird Al Yankovic and many more as part of the Toyota Summer Concert series.
