Marin County Fair to Make Spirited Return on June 30

Don’t miss the first in-person Marin County Fair since summer 2019, an outdoor event with the theme “So Happy Together!” from June 30 through July 4.

Jam along to some of Marin County’s favorite bands, including Pablo Cruise and Sons of Champlin, who will rock the Island Stage alongside a lineup that features Sheila E., Digable Planets, and George Porter Jr. and Dumpstaphunk performing The Meters. Stay after the concerts each night as fireworks illuminate the sky over the Lagoon.

Jugglers, unicyclists and other fan-favorite performers like the Stilt Circus, Street Drum Corps, the Rawhide Express Train and Balloonacy, will roam the fairgrounds each day. Hip-hop, skip, twirl and join us at the Hennessy Funds Community Stage for an exciting lineup of talented acts from Marin County and beyond! Meet and have your photo taken with your favorite Star Wars (Lucasfilm Ltd.) characters! Share the fair with barnyard buddies including award-winning rabbits, guinea pigs, pocket pets, chickens and more. And don’t miss the 28 carnival rides and games which are included with the price of admission. A $5 ticket is required for select rides: The Wacky Worm Coaster, Rock Star and Freak Out.

Get creative at the Artist Circle tent, where we’ll have hands-on art making, family coloring contests and So Happy Together art activities. Or join the Marin Makers for Solar Spin Art, a fairgrounds scavenger hunt, and experience a 30-foot-tall sunflower. Shop till you drop in the Global Marketplace, where you’ll find everything from crafts to masks and jewelry to java.

Bring your appetite and enjoy fair favorites — from corn dogs and cotton candy to organic lemonade and mango-on-a-stick — or choose from healthy food options. Bring a water bottle for use at one of our water refilling stations throughout the fairgrounds.
