About the Marin County Fair

In its 79th year, the award-winning Marin County Fair is the County’s premier community event with over 120,000 attendees annually. Marin County, just north of San Francisco, is rich in creativity, nature, and community. Frank Lloyd Wright described Marin County as “one of the most beautiful landscapes” he had ever seen, with green rolling hills providing the perfect backdrop for a county fair.

Held annually over the 4th of July holiday, fairgoers enjoy five days of art and exhibits, barnyard animals, free carnival rides, concerts by Grammy award-winning musical artists, local entertainment, and a fireworks show every night! From baked goods and quilts to fine art and photography, there are over 10,000 entries on display by exhibitors throughout the region to inspire and be admired by all! With a global marketplace of over 100 vendors and 20 food vendors, there is something that fits every taste!

The Marin County Fair is produced by the Marin County Department of Cultural Services in partnership with the Marin Cultural Association. The Fair is enjoyed by local and international visitors both young and old.

Celebrated as the Healthiest and Greenest County Fair on Earth since 2008, the Marin County Fair proudly features a solar powered carousel, solar powered stage, and a 92% waste diversion rate. The Fair offers fresh and healthy food choices, alcohol-free sponsorships, and a smoke-free environment for the enjoyment of all.

The Marin County Fair inspires through traditional values — Art. Agriculture. Community.

Marin County Fair: The Soaring 2020s

The 2020 Marin County Fair (July 1-5, 2020) – The Soaring 2020s – pays tribute to a new decade of imagination and innovation and celebrates the spirit of reaching for the sky and knowing that anything is possible. The theme also gives a nod to the ideals of the Roaring 20s, one hundred years ago, celebrating food, fun, and merriment. Special themed exhibit categories will pay tribute to things that soar – birds, planes, kites, gliders, hot air balloons, and more. Exhibits will also include trends in robotics and technology and as always, showcase some of the things we value most in our community – art, agriculture, and the environment.

See you at the Fair!
