Coming Up: San Mateo County Fair

The San Mateo County Fair is coming up - I love this fair! Greasy food, rides, animals galore, judged table settings, funky sales booths, demonstrations, 4-H kids, petting zoos and free concerts (with fair admission). What can be better than this?

When: Saturday June 12-Sunday June 20
Special days: (click here for the calendar of events/special days)
Monday, June 14 - Kids Day - kids 12 and under get in free (bring kids' books to donate)
Tuesday June 15 - Eddie Money performs!
Wednesday, June 16 - Free til 3:00
Friday June 18 - Rick Springfield performs! Free admission for military personnel with ID

Ticket deals: Costco (South SF and Mountain View) offer 57% off tickets (deal is for 2 tickets/2 carnival)until June 11. AAA offices sell 20% off admission tickets at their offices too. Or pre-buy tickets here for a discount.

  1. We live right next to the fair grounds, and we can hear the music from here! So fun!

    Here's another great idea for San Mateo Kids Activities that I'd love to share with fellow parents...

    Saddle Ridge Ranch - Vacation Bible School (VBS). It's a week of fun games, crafts, songs, and "campfire chats," all about learning how to ask God those tough "life-questions." It's free, for kids finishing Kindergarten to 5th grade.
    WHEN: Sunday June 20 (10:30a-12:00p), and then Mon-Thurs, June 21-24, 6:00-8:30pm. WHERE: It's put on by "KidCity" - a children's program of Western Hills Church. (3399 CSM Drive, San Mateo CA 94402, 650-574-4881)
