Join Marin TV at The Marin County Fair!

The Community Media Center of Marin will have a booth at the indoor Art Exhibit at the Marin County Fair. Come join us for the festivities!

The award-winning Marin County Fair is the County’s premier community event with over 120,000 attendees annually. Marin County, just north of San Francisco, is rich in creativity, nature, and community. Frank Lloyd Wright described Marin County as “one of the most beautiful landscapes” he had ever seen, with green rolling hills providing the perfect backdrop for a county fair.

The Marin County Fair is produced by the Marin County Department of Cultural Services in partnership with the Marin Cultural Association.

Celebrated as the Healthiest and Greenest County Fair on Earth since 2008, the Marin County Fair proudly features a solar powered carousel, solar powered stage, and a 92% waste diversion rate. The Fair offers fresh and healthy food choices, alcohol-free sponsorships, and a smoke-free environment for the enjoyment of all.

The Marin County Fair inspires through traditional values — Art. Agriculture. Community.
