Friends of the Date Festival


Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival 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. The Riverside County Fair & National Date Festival, managed by the Riverside County Economic Development Agency (EDA), is a grand, ten-day event which takes place each February. The event meets social, cultural and economic needs of the community with over 8,000 exhibits and a diverse entertainment line-up.
