2019 Marin County Fair, Over the Moon!

The fair will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing as well as some of the things we value most in our community: family, art, agriculture, and the environment.

Themed exhibit categories will include decorated moons and paper moons; exciting photography categories including moonscapes, barnyard buddies, and trees; new and innovative makers projects; baked goods, lively culinary contests, fine art, and much more.

On the Blue Ribbon Stage, we will feature a cheese of the day as an homage to the moon made of cheese in the Fair artwork. Returning Fair classics are traditional carnival rides, free concerts, and fireworks every night over the Civic Center’s Lagoon Park.

As always, the Marin County Fair prides itself on being the Greenest County Fair on Earth with its solar-powered carousel and stage, commitment to water conservation, and a record of over 91 percent waste diversion to compost and recycling.

Everything you need to know about entertainment, competitive exhibits, things to do, transit options and more can be found here.

Hope to see you there!
