22nd District Agricultural Association considers more stringent smoking regulations for San Diego County Fair

The San Diego County Fair may have more stringent smoking policies this year.

During its May 10 meeting, the 22nd District Agricultural Association (22nd DAA) board of directors discussed either reducing the number of designated smoking areas or not allowing children in the areas where smoking is allowed. Because the item was not the formal agenda, no action could be taken. However, the board agreed to place the item on its June 7 meeting, when action will likely be taken.

The proposed changes come after months of public feedback requesting that the fair become a completely smoke-free venue, or at least significantly reduce its eight designated smoking areas.

Fairgrounds staff has been meeting regularly with a group of concerned residents in an effort to modify its smoking policy. As a result, this year’s fair will include an anti-smoking message that will be displayed on a video board. There will also be two one-hour smoking cessation seminars conducted during the fair, which are slated for 3 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15 and June 29 inside the Turf Club. The exhibit hall at the fair will also have booth space for anti-smoking information.

The San Diego County Fair is scheduled for Friday, June 10, through Monday, July 4.
