Silly? Of course. Our contests are created strictly for giggles, prove that people will participate in fun while gaining bragging rights, a little fame and, sometimes cash! Average fairgoers get a few minutes in the spotlight, they just need a combination of humor, lack of inhibition and some skill. “Daily Contests celebrate just for fun” says Fair Operations Manager Justin Aquino. So don’t be a party pooper. Join the crowds—and fun competitors—at the San Mateo County Fair’s wackiest daily contests. Prizes awarded for those that dare to compete in our fun day of contest!
