The annual Crossroads of the West gun show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds has been going on for decades. It’s never really been a problem, until the past few years when anti-gun activists began targetting it.

Now, the show has been put on hold for at least a year and may not be permitted to return.


The 22nd Agricultural Board voted 8-1 on Tuesday to postpone adding future shows in the Del Mar Fairgrounds until after the end of the year as it reviews the contract with the Crossroads of the West gun show, which has called the venue its home for the past three decades. Board member Richard Valdez said they received input from several in the community including those in Del Mar, Encinitas, and Solana Beach, and the board will weigh having guns present at future events past the two scheduled for later this year.

“The recommendation is to prohibit the presence of the guns on the fairgrounds, consistent with every other event, consistent with state law, that the guns will not be allowed on the fairgrounds premises, by folks who attend, by vendors,” Valdez said.
