Welcome to the 2016 Marin County Fair – 75 Years – What a Ride!

This year the 75th Anniversary of the award-winning Marin County Fair What a Ride! celebrates 75 years of the Marin County Fair – reflecting on past years of this beloved summer event, showcasing the present, and looking forward to its future as a leader in the Fair industry.

Our guests will experience all the best our great County Fair has to offer - its colorful traditions and innovations, unparalleled art and photography, farm animals, family activities, popular concerts, thrilling rides, leading-edge exhibits, and spectacular fireworks displays each night – everything that has made the Marin County Fair the largest community event in Marin County and one of the Bay Area’s favorite and most anticipated summer events.

The Global Marketplace will feature products and services from around the globe. The Marin County Fair continues its legacy of being The Greenest County Fair on Earth by requesting that Fair vendors use biodegradable or re-usable bags for merchandise, and that all food samples be served with compostable containers and utensils. Other tips for “being green” are included in the Global Marketplace Handbook. The Global Marketplace Handbook was designed to provide all the necessary information you will need both before and during the Fair. It is the responsibility of each vendor to read the Handbook, know the rules and to abide by them while at the Marin County Fair.

We expect over 120,000 fairgoers to attend. We are partners with you in welcoming Fair guests to the Marin County Fair and ensuring that their Fair experience is pleasant and entertaining.

We look forward to having your business or organization as an integral part of the Global Marketplace at 75 Years – What a Ride! June 30 - July 4.
