San Mateo County Fair

The San Mateo County Fair is a week of fun for the whole family! 4-H members across the county compete in youth exhibition categories, including animal showmanship, arts & crafts, and food science. All 4-H youth members are encouraged to participate. Two fundraisers are also held during this event: Pen Pride and Cake Booth. Pen Pride is a market animal (steer, hog, sheep, etc) raised by local 4-H club members. During fair, the public guesses the weight of the animal and 4-H members man the Pen Pride booth. Each club also takes a shift at the cake booth to sell cake. All money earned goes back to our educational programs in our county.

The fair has been canceled in 2020 due to the Covid 19 Pandemic Emergency. For more information, please visit the San Mateo County Fair website.
