Everyday Is A Chance To Play - Daily Contests

San Mateo’s wackiest Fair Daily Fun contests continue a tradition of low-tech, homegrown challenges” observes Dana Stoehr, CEO at the San Mateo County Event Center and Fair.  Contests give kids and adults the perfect excuse to have fun and get maybe get messy.

Silly? Of course. Our contests are created strictly for giggles, prove that people will participate in fun while gaining bragging rights, a little fame and, sometimes cash! Average fairgoers get a few minutes in the spotlight, they just need a combination of humor, lack of inhibition and some skill. “Daily Contests celebrate just for fun” says Fair Operations Manager Justin Aquino. So don’t be a party pooper. Join the crowds—and fun competitors—at the San Mateo County Fair’s wackiest daily contests. Prizes awarded for those that dare to compete in our fun day of contest!
