Dietz Stage

Introducing Dietz Stage! New name, new location. Formerly South Stage, you will be able to enjoy the same great music and entertainment at its new location in the back left corner of Live Oak Field. Dietz Stage honors the late Pat Dietz and the entire Dietz family who have made an incredible impact on our South Bay community. The Dietz Brothers have been playing at the Hometown Fair and other venues and events around the South Bay since 1969 and their music has touched the hearts and souls of so many. Please join us on Sunday 10/8 at 1 pm for a stage dedication and special performance from the Dietz Band.

Dietz Stage features invited talent, focusing on Cover and Tribute bands. Interested performers can contact our Main Stage and Dietz Stage Directors directly.

Come listen to your favorite music while enjoying lunch from one of our many Food Booths, or just to rest for a while.  Entertainment includes music from soft country and blues to rock and roll.  There is something for everyone.

We kick things off at the Dietz Stage immediately following the parade.  The Mira Costa High School Band officially opens the Fair!
