PLEASE READ THIS WHOLE PAGE CAREFULLY ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM AS THERE IS A LOT OF IMPORTANT INFORMATION. If you have attended a Heartlight show at the SD County Fair in the past, the procedures are different now, so please read all the information.
A. To better serve Fair guests, the San Diego County Fair is moving to a cashless payment experience for parking, admission tickets, carnival rides & games . Cashless payments are safer and faster, too–avoid wait times at the gate and spend more time enjoying the Fair! There’s no transaction fees for admission or parking. Cash-to-Credit ATM machines will be available in select locations to exchange cash for a debit card. Check the Fair Website for more information.
B. WAIVER: Don’t forget to bring your signed waiver with you to the Fair. The waivers will be attached to the Fair passes your children receive. Waivers will be turned in to the Fair Stage Manager.
C. PASSES: Each Heartlight Student will receive a pass for themselves and a pass for ONE adult Chaperone to enter the Fairgrounds for FREE. Only students who have permission from their parents to perform will receive these passes. If you have not already, please let your child’s Heartlight Director know your child will be performing. You can use the Parent Permission Form or email your child's Heartlight Director from our CONTACT page.
D. ABOUT THE STAGE /SHOW: The name of the stage (same as past years) is called the “Albertson’s/Vons Funville Stage” and it is once again located in the KIDS ZONE (the infield area). There is a great map on Fair Website under “Plan Your Visit” but be sure to get a program/map as you enter the gates.
E. ARRIVAL: Please arrive at the Fairgrounds as early as you can and be sure to stay after the show and enjoy the Fair. Arrive at the Funville Stage 15 minutes prior to the start of your child’s performance and then PLEASE FIND SEATS AND SIT WITH YOUR CHILD & FAMILY. Please be respectful of any performance taking place prior to our Heartlight Show. YOU DO NOT NEED to check in with Heartlight Staff. At the start of our show we will call the children by school to meet their instructors in front of the stage.
F. DURING THE SHOW: Students will perform one dance onstage and also a grand finale on the floor with all children present. Parents may not sit on the dance floor as that is used for the children. Please remain seated during the performance. The performance is one hour long.
G. ATTIRE for Children: children performing can wear any color Heartlight shirt, black or any dark shorts or pants, and athletic shoes or sneakers. Girls wearing skirts: please wear shorts underneath. If it’s a cooler day (shows are in the early evening) children should wear a long sleeve shirt or light sweater/sweatshirt under their Heartlight shirt. Note: If your child still needs to purchase a shirt, please contact your child’s Heartlight Director as it Much Preferred for parents to purchase shirts before the performance.
H. ENTERING THE FAIR: You can enter through ANY gate. All other tickets for your group can be purchased at https://www.sdfair.com/p/tickets for a quick and easy entrance.

A Couple Other Things:

- Please have your child use the restroom before finding seats at the Stage Area. Restrooms are located close by.
- THERE WILL BE A HEARTLIGHT PERFORMANCE FROM 4:30PM-5:30PM, JUST BEFORE YOUR 6:00 SHOW. PLEASE ALLOW THE FAMILIES FROM THE 4:30 PERFORMANCE TO CLEAR THE SHOW AREA BEFORE SITTING. THANK YOU!
