“Ticket to County Fair” and “San Mateo Heroes” School Programs Expands Access to Youth at San Mateo County Fair

San Mateo’s Community Super heroes! You have Super Powers!! We want you to read two books or volunteer 20 hours at the San Mateo County Fair – Have fun while helping your community. High school students get FREE access to The San Mateo County Fair, June 10 – 18. Reading two books and submitting a short report gets students two free rides.

“Coming to the County Fair has been a tradition of FUN in our community” “We want all our kids to have the opportunity to experience this great tradition and be inspired.” said Dana Stoehr, CEO of the San Mateo County Event Center and County Fair.

The County Fair’s Passport to Fun program is a STEM based scavenger hunt in which kids can participate and be entered to win a prize.

“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,” said Stoehr. “Through a constantly evolving spectrum of STEM and arts-based programming, we work to live up to our theme ‘Where Tradition Meets Innovation’ every single year.”
