National Date Festival

The Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival

Ten Days of Fabulous Family Fun and Entertainment!


Get ready as the 74th annual Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival makes its way to Indio February 14th – 23rd.


For 74 years, families have looked to the Riverside County Fair to give them the best entertainment value – that’s why they keep coming back year after year.  We have an exciting line-up of Headliner entertainment in the Fantasy Springs Concert Pavilion including George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Banda Machos, I Love the 90’s (featuring Vanilla Ice, Coolio, Tone-Loc and Young MC), Chris Janson and Mariachi Sol de Mexico de Jose Hernandez. Don’t forget that all headliner entertainment is included with the price of admission.


The Grandstand Arena features exhilarating shows that are a must see and also part of your admission ticket.  Humpz & Hornz Bull Riding, Monster Trucks with Metal Mulisha/Fitz Army Freestyle Motocross, Junior Outlaw Sprints, Mini-Dwarfs Racing, Lawn Mower Racing and Demolition Derby will thrill the crowds throughout the Fair run. Midweek entertainment, Tuesday through Thursday, in the arena will include BMX Pros Stunt Show.


Indulge in all your favorite Fair foods while you visit, from Cinnamon Rolls to Funnel Cakes and Deep-fried Twinkies.  You are sure to find something to satisfy your sweet tooth! The Arabian Nights Musical Pageant will mesmerize crowds with a talented cast of singers and dancers in dazzling regalia. Mid-week entertainment on the Pageant Stage will include Mana and Santana tribute bands, along with a local cover band. Two Carnivals will delight the entire family with extreme rides for thrill seekers, as well as rides for the young or young at heart.
