County Fair seeks performers, offers scholarships

San Diego County Fair officials are looking for performers for this year’s event, June 8-July 4, with the 2012 theme, “Out of This World.”

Applications are now available at the fair’s website,

  1. The deadline to apply is March 30.

Those wishing to perform on a specific date or a specific stage should apply as early as possible, since booking will begin much earlier than the deadline date.
Applications also are online for the daily opening ceremonies, which include national anthem singers and Scout troops to raise the flags.

In addition, four $5,000 college scholarships will be awarded to outstanding high school seniors who have participated in the San Diego County Fair, either as an exhibitor or as an employee. Applications must be postmarked by April 2. Information and applications at
