Marin County Fair 

From June 30 through July 4, 2023, the Marin County Fair will return in full (indoors and outdoors) for the first time since 2019. With the theme Electrifying!, this year's fair will celebrate all things electric, solar, and charged with excitement. The 2023 fair will include fair favorites such as the juried Fine Arts and Photography Exhibit, headline concerts, carnival rides, sheepdog trials, the petting zoo, fireworks every night, and much more. The popular competitive exhibits program will take place in person and celebrate our talented and creative community members with winning blue ribbons and more. San Rafael Events
