Eastern San Diego County Junior Fair is underway

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego County Fair may be a couple weeks away but the Eastern San Diego County Junior Fair just got underway.

The Eastern San Diego County Junior Fair (ESDCJF) was started around 1947. The history of the fair spans locations across Eastern San Diego County beginning in El Cajon, then moving to Gillespie Field, and finally to its current home at the Eastern San Diego County Junior Fair grounds located in Lakeside, California.

The fair has withstood the test of time and brings together important skills and trades to provide a venue for competition and exhibition to the members of 4-H and Future Farmers of America (FFA). It is a unique variety of livestock, small animal and home arts shows where the exhibitors can compete and families and community members can visit to see what agriculture and the youth of 4-H and FFA are all about.

Fair week culminates with the junior livestock auction where exhibitors can sell their animals. Please see the auction information if you are interested in attending the auction and possibly purchasing an animal.

The fair is proud to be a non-profit organization supported 100% through volunteer labor and fundraising. Their efforts are a labor of love. The fair board would like to encourage everyone to become involved in the fair as it is a worthy cause
