Held July 3-7, 2019 at the Marin County Fairgrounds in San Rafael, the 2019 Marin County Fair, Over the Moon! 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.
“We developed the theme as an opportunity to honor the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon, but also to showcase the feeling the Fair evokes from our entire community,” says Director of Cultural Services Gabriella C. Calicchio. “Celebrating art, agriculture, and community are values we hold near and dear and we are literally ‘over the moon’ with excitement in the planning for the 2019 Fair!”
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.
The Fair poster was created from an original work of art by Marin County artist Debbie Patrick.
