‘The Fab Fair’ selected as theme of 2014 San Diego County Fair

By Joe Tash

Members of the 22nd District Agricultural Association board unanimously approved “The Fab Fair” as the theme of the 2014 San Diego County Fair at their meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

The 22nd DAA board oversees the state-owned Del Mar fairgrounds.  Each year, the board selects a theme for the next year’s county fair.  This year, the theme was “Game On,” and included displays and events related to different types of games.

The 2014 theme will celebrate music and culture that came to the U.S. in the early ‘60s during the British Invasion, including the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Kinks and the Who.

The fair has secured two exhibits for the 2014 fair, according to a news release issued Tuesday:

“The Beatles! – Backstage and Behind the Scenes,” is a fine art photography exhibition from the CBS photo archive and LIFE photographer Bill Eppridge.  It includes 84 never-before published images of the Beatles first appearances in America in 1964.

“Give Peace a Chance,” commemorates John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s historic “bed-in” for peace.  The exhibition features photography by Gerry Deiter, the only photographer who was present in their hotel room for all eight days of the bed-in.

A video presentation highlighting the British Invasion, and other 1964 events such as civil rights marches and Vietnam War protests, was shown to the board at its meeting on Tuesday.

More details about the events and activities planned for the 2014 fair will be unveiled in the coming months.

The 2014 San Diego County Fair will open on Saturday, June 7, and run through Sunday, July 6. The fair will be closed on Mondays and the first two Tuesdays (June 10 and 17).
