Tuesdays are Deal Days at San Diego County Fair
Music, food, laughs, what more could San Diegans ask for? If you’re looking for a good time with a great value, don’t miss the San Diego fair on Tuesdays.
For just three bucks, less than the cost of a gallon of gas, you can gain entrance to this fun filled, action packed event. All you have to do is just spend a five dollar minimum purchase with your Albertson’s Preferred Card, and you can buy your three dollar admission ticket. Normal admission is thirteen dollars so don’t miss out on this great deal. Plus, you can park at Horsepark at no cost and use the free shuttle service to get to the fair. Horsepark is located east Interstate 5 at Via de la Valle and El Camino Real.
The deals don’t stop there though. Tuesdays are also Kid’s Day where any children 12 and under can get in for free. There’s a ton for kids to do too. The fair features its family friendly area called The Infield which includes Kiddieland rides, children’s entertainment, and Creative Youth, which showcases thousands of creations by elementary school students.
And if you’re hungry, you can be your own food critic for just two bucks. You’ll have the opportunity to grab the popular taster size portions from tons of the fairs featured good eats, keeping your appetite and wallet full.
If that isn’t music to your ears, A Flock of Seagulls performing for the Ford Dealers Paddock Series at the fair on Tuesday will be. The Grammy award-winning hit British group, known for their hit songs I Ran (So Far Away), Space Age Love Song, and Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You) will entertain you at the fair’s intimate setting. A Flock of Seagulls is part of the Paddock Series multi-artist tour featured at the fair with this great lineup. They’ll come on stage at 9:00 PM so be ready.
If there’s not a smile on your face already, comedian Bill Engvall will change that. The Toyota Summer Concert series is coming to the Grandstand Stage at the fair. Engvall will be there for one night only; Tuesday is a day not to miss. Engvall’s tagline “Here’s your sign” has made him a hilarious sensation all around the country. Bill performs at 7:30 PM so plan ahead to get a good seat. You can get details about the Grandstand Stage and more upcoming performances by other great artists here.
Neither the Flock of Seagulls concert nor Bill Engvall’s performance has any reserved seating. Both are free to attend with your general admission ticket. No strings attached.
For just three dollars, on an otherwise quiet Tuesday, you can have a blast with the whole family at the San Diego county fair, enjoy a great comedy show, experience a live music performance by an award-winning group, and have your appetite fed for two more dollars. If only every Tuesday was this great.
