Del Mar Fairgrounds - San Diego, Ca
Where the Turf Meets the Surf. Located in the North San Diego County beachfront community of Del Mar, The Del Mar Fairgrounds feature gorgeous, Spanish Colonial built- space set in front of jaw- dropping views of the California Coast. The Del Mar Fairgrounds has a star- studded history, dating back to 1936 with Bing Crosby (cofounder of the Del Mar Turf Club) bringing his Hollywood friends down the Southern California coast to enjoy horse racing, “The Sport of Kings” at Del Mar. The rich horse racing tradition continues at the Del Mar Fairgrounds with the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club hosting summer and fall meets.

Aside from horse racing, the Del Mar Fairgrounds hosts the annual San Diego County Fair and the hugely popular KAABOO Music Festival. Due in part to its beauty, mild climate and diversity of event space The Del Mar Fairgrounds is a popular event venue for athletic competition, trade shows, expos, conferences, meetings and social events. The 22nd District Agricultural Association (22nd DAA) manages and operates the Del Mar Fairgrounds; a complex that spans 340 acres and has 180,000 square feet of exhibit space. With such a massive campus, a venue to be highlighted is the Del Mar Arena; an enclosed arena with seating for 7,000. This is a great event space for concerts, athletic competition (functional fitness, cheerleading, martial arts), action sports, motor sports and animal shows. The Del Mar location is just off of Interstate 5, making it easily accessible to San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles County event attendees. The location is also a dream- vacation spot. Events (like the Surf Cup and KAABOO) in Del Mar do very well on registrations and ticket sales because participants often stretch the trip into a family vacation.
