For 60 years, friends and families have made a tradition of attending the Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival at the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio, California. The camel and ostrich races, the Nightly Musical Pageant and the history of dates are just a few of the fair’s unique features that are tradition to annual fair-goers. With its rich history, over 250,000 guests continue to attend the first county fair of the year.
