A message from the owners of Kennedy Faires Inc./Kennedy and Associates, Rick and Chris Bauer. To our valued vendors: Kennedy Faires Inc. and the San Diego Event Coalition (SDEC) has had some great success is lobbying for the Outdoor Event Industry. The county of San Diego has approved to temporarily waive county temporary food permit fees to support the Event Industry/Community and the community as a whole. This significant decision, in addition to the Governor's decision to "Fully" open up our economy on June 15, 2021, will allow Outdoor Street Festivals to once again take part in the business recovery stage. Kennedy and Associates appreciates you all for hanging in there with us and enduring this hardship that will soon be over. We still remain positive and diligent as we all can see the light at the end of this tunnel. Be certain, that we will continue to pray for all of you and that we all will see greater and better days in the future. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our 2021 events. Thank you for hanging in there with us!

Kennedy Faires Inc. will update the site as we become aware of any 2021 schedule changes. Thank you for your understanding.
