The San Mateo County Fair this year has the motto of “Where Tradition Meets Innovation”and will feature an incredible array of Technology products in the main hall with an emphasis on Kid’s Education. The Technology and Do It Yourself (DIY) exhibits are back from a successful run at last years fair. Kids get hands on experience with innovative new concepts and devices such as 3-D printers and software to help them learn how to program and create their own original computer games. The Do it Yourself environment can be an excellent opportunity for kids to experiment and learn new how to create. Additionally there were exhibits by 4-H, Future Farmers of America (FFA), painting, fine art, cooking and healthy eating were just part of the fun.



One of the companies exhibiting in the Technology area is We Cam, a new player in the Social Media communications space. WeCam wecamGangis a social video calling app that lets you connect directly to your friends, family and colleagues or your social media peeps such as on Faceb ook, Twitter and Google+. “We Cam is really cool” says Arthur English a visiting student from London attending the event, “you get your friends to use the app it can be a toy or a tool to help you in your daily life or just mess around a bit”.  The App also allows you to conduct smart “people” searches to discover other like-minded people on WeCam. Visit them at their booth at the fair and receive a chance to win an iPod during the show. While we were there two people won!


The FREE Concert series is running the entire length of the Fair from June 7th through Sunday June 15th. One of the Event City favorite bands at the fair this year is WAR. The band has been playing steadily for the last 45 years as one of the premier talents coming from the SF Bay Area. See WAR at the San Mateo County Fair this year.
