2023 Education Programs Information

As one of the Peninsula’s largest non-profit organizations, the San Mateo County Fair has always been committed to providing meaningful, educational fun for our kids. Through a constantly evolving spectrum of STEAM and arts-based programming, we work to live up to our standing theme “Where Tradition Meets Innovation”.

We are excited to bring back several educational programs we have developed over the years that entice every age level!
