The 2023 fair will include favorites such as the juried fine arts and photography exhibit, headline concerts, carnival rides, sheepdog trials, a petting zoo, fireworks every night, and much more.

The popular competitive exhibits program will take place in person and celebrate talented and creative community members. The competitive exhibits categories will be announced in March.

“We are thrilled to welcome our community back to the beloved Marin County Fair,” said Marin County Director of Cultural Services Gabriella Calicchio. “The theme Electrifying! celebrates the future with special exhibits highlighting the latest innovations in natural renewable resources. We are ecstatic about producing an electrifying event for everyone in Marin County.”

The Electrifying! poster was designed by Marin County digital artist Vaidis Valaitis as a special commission for the 2023 fair. Celebrating the spirit of the fair theme, digital art is made by using digital technology, whether computer generated, scanned, or drawn using a tablet and mouse.

In the spring, the fair’s headline music acts will be announced, and tickets will go on sale.

The 2023 fair will follow guidance from Marin County Public Health to ensure the health and safety of all fair visitors and participants.
