Known locally as the “Gundo”, it’s almost more of a state of mind than an incorporated town, but that’s where you find this weekend’s perfect family event. In fact, there will be generations of families attending the El Segundo Hometown Fair & Carnival this Saturday May 4th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. because small-town family life is the driving force behind the charm of anything happening in El Segundo. Don’t bring your GPS, just remember the following address: Library Park, 600 Main Street, El Segundo, directly across from El Segundo High School.
Like in years past, the fair is accented by traditional activities like snacking on fair food, watching toddlers perform dance routines, game booths, participate in a bake-off, listen to some live music, and a carnival ride or two. If you have time, stop by El Segundo’s Historic Richmond Street and mosey into Richmond Bar & Grill. It’s a no fuss all thrills, cash only bar that serves craft beers, hot dog sandwiches, and homemade potato chips.
This year El Segundo High School groups are coordinating food booths and game booths in effort to raise funds for their academic clubs. Vendors will be selling unique handmade crafts, while the El Segundo Police Department and El Segundo non-profit groups will participate in the event to provide information about their respective organizations and programs.

The El Segundo Rotary Club host their fourth Rubber Ducky Adoption Day event at the fair, find a rotary club member and to adopt a duck for $5. Each duck acts like a raffle ticket with grand prize winner netting a $500 gift card on Amazon.
The annual Bake-Off will take place in the Gazebo in Library Park. Entries will be accepted from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Judging will begin shortly after with winners announced at 2:30 p.m. Categories include: Cookies, Petite Desserts and Breads & Pastries.
