Marin County Fair—All for One & Fun for All!, Marin Magazine

Saturday, June 30–Wednesday, July 4
11 a.m.–11 p.m.

All for One & FUN for All! Spend your Fourth of July holiday at the Marin County Fair! This year’s Fair celebrates the values we hold near and dear—inclusiveness, equality, diversity, and of course…FUN! We celebrate the arts, agriculture, the environment and our community. As always, there are carnival rides, free concerts by The Beach Boys, Los Lobos, LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Money, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and more, and fireworks every night. 

Themed exhibit categories include decorated flags and banners, baked goods and culinary contests from around the world, global photography, and more. Don’t miss the Fine Art exhibit, it’s one of the best in the industry and showcases more than 1000 works of art from painting to mixed media and sculpture to jewelry. 

Shop artfully at the Fair’s Green Room Gallery for one-of-a kind locally produced gifts and meet some of Marin County’s top artisans, showcasing their unique jewelry, textiles, home accessories, and quality crafts. Take home something special for the art lovers in your family while supporting the true creative culture of Marin! 

Explore an immersive visual experience where fairgoers help create a universe using interactive augmented and virtual reality tools. Wander through the forest and build tomorrow’s world using Transvertigos and Strawbees. Collect temporary tattoos that unlock secrets and explore the Fair with our ARMaze app downloaded to your phone. 

Join us throughout the day on the Global Stage in the Exhibit Hall for dance performances from around the world. Hear student poets from ForWords, attend a HipHopforChange workshop, learn about and listen to Iranian diaspora poets, and participate in a community poem activity, as well as open mike readings. 

“We developed the theme as an opportunity to celebrate everyone who lives in our community. The Fair showcases the best of what we each have to offer, whether a community poem, a 5th graders art project, an amazing hip hop dancer, a grandmother’s award-winning quilt or three generations of a family working on an “art in the spot” project,” said Director of Cultural Services Gabriella C. Calicchio. “At the Fair we don’t care what your country of origin is, what color skin you have, what your religious or political beliefs are, we care about creating a safe space for everyone to leave their worries behind and have FUN!”

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 91-percent waste diversion to compost and recycling. 

Come celebrate the arts, agriculture, the environment, and our community, and join us at the Fair.
