National Date Festival

The Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival

Ten Days of Fabulous Family Fun and Entertainment!


The Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival is located in Indio, an oasis situated in the vast California desert, approximately 130 miles east from Los Angeles. The Fair started as a festival to celebrate the end of the annual date harvest in the Coachella Valley, the major commercial date-producing area in the western hemisphere.


Today, the Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival remains an integral part of the greater Coachella Valley community and a major tourist attraction. It continues the legacy of decades-old desert traditions while celebrating our history and community, and of course, providing fun and excitement for everyone.


Check back to see what exciting new entertainment acts will be featured for the 74th annual Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival next year.  Remember to save the dates: February 14-23, 2020!
