A reduced fair is still a fair, isn’t it? If there are farm animals, a few actors and of course artery blockers, we from the Weekend Guide decide – it’s a fair!
Call it what you like – the organizers of the San Diego County Fair called it Home * Grown * Fun, but it opens at 11 a.m. on Friday where the fair is always – the Del Mar Fairgrounds, which runs through Nov. Lasting July weekly event offers “a taste of what San Diegans has come to love about the annual fair,” but with just 35 food stalls, 280 shop vendors, pony rides, a magician, racing pigs and lots of activities for kids. $ 10 tickets must be purchased online, Wednesday through Sunday, 11am to 9pm
Virtual Reality puts you right in the middle of the story, and Traveling While Black presents an uncomfortable one – the experience of black Americans who have encountered barriers in their travels. Book a slot thanks to Wonderspaces to see the Emmy-nominated short film at Liberty Station from Friday to Sunday. Tickets are $ 12, with multiple discounts.
Mainly Mozart opens his week-long all-star event on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. at the Del Mar Surf Cup Sports Park.

Opening evening with works by Beethoven and Mozart. On Saturday it’s Ravel, Haydn and Mozart. Tickets start at $ 49.
Most of our favorite artists still can’t come to us, but the Florida Georgia Line country duo will be showing Saturday at 11.30pm at South Bay Drive-In in San Diego. For $ 74, up to six people per car can enjoy the late night show. Also see guests Nelly and Chase Rice.
The Women’s Museum of California at Liberty Station is hosting the San Diego Women’s Virtual Film Festival this month.

Sisters Rising – about six Indian women – is available until June 22nd. The passes are $ 30 or $ 15 for a demonstration.
The East Village Gastropub Knotty Barrel celebrates its 10th anniversary on Sunday and it becomes a circus. Hey we mean business It’s really. From 12 noon to 5 p.m., the owners run a petting zoo, provide live music and be brave! – even a handheld reader. Do you need more fair food? There will also be funnel cake and cotton candy. Better still – all for free.
