About The Event

This year, we plan to welcome thousands of people to make the trip to Encanto, San Diego, to eat fried foods, take a plunge on a carnival ride, and maybe win a prize at one of the many game booths.

But there are more attractions at the carnival than just the food and rides…

The SDCA fair will offer visitors several rides as well as a variety of games, food, and drinks. It will also pay tribute to community heroes (senior, adult, and youth), elected officials, and local high school marching bands.

One of the main attractions will be a live music concert series featuring local singers, bands, and entertainers performing throughout the day.


***Admission is Free For All Ages***

Time: 12 pm – 5 pm *subject to change*

Location: Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation

Address: 404 Euclid Avenue, San Diego, CA 92114
