San Diego County Fair

The San Diego Botanic Garden is proud to have been awarded nine awards at the Flower & Garden Show at the San Diego County “Fab Fair” this year!

The Flower & Garden Show display’s theme, "Happy Ever After," is a take-off of the Beatles song "Ob-la-di Ob-la-da." Our amazing volunteers created an stunning garden for Desmond and Molly Jones (characters in the Beatles song), who dance for joy as their children play amidst their beautiful, working-class garden. The 2014 San Diego County Fair, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the British Invasion, will run through July 6 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.


Here's a list of all the awards the judges bestowed on our display:

  • Theme Garden Winner
  • Environmental Award - 2nd
  • Hardscape Feature Award - 3rd
  • Edwin Frazee - Winner
  • Kellogg Garden Products "Grow Your Own" - 1st
  • Pennsylvania Horticultural Society "Distinguished Garden" Winner
  • Aztec Perlite Company - Winner
  • Don & Dorothy Walker Award for Most Outstanding Exhibit Winner
  • Master Gardener Sustainability Award Winner, Award of Merit
