Enviro Fair
Jun 21 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Join us for the 15th Annual Enviro Fair and Locally-Grown Fest on Saturday, June 21 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM in the San Diego County Fair’s Paddock Area.

Sponsored by Albertsons/Sav-on, the San Diego County Ford Dealers and Think Blue, Enviro Fair will stress the importance of recycling, sustainable living, pollution prevention, conservation, and environmentally-friendly products. Non-profit organizations will be on hand to illustrate ways Fairgoers can take better care of our world.

Think Blue

Fairgoers can learn firsthand about organic and sustainable farming. Buying locally grown produce picked at its peak is the healthiest way to eat fruits and vegetables, plus you can support the local economy at the same time. Chefs and farmers will partner to show you how to prepare some of this produce with free (limited) samples.

Returning this year are local farmers and their Community Supported Agriculture Programs, or CSAs.
