San Diego County Fair Banner Program 2019

Dear Mission Hills BID Business Owner:

Please spread the word to your Mission Hills business owner neighbors!


It is Fair Banner Photo Time! 69 Spots! 7 weeks for $75! They fill up fast! Please email our Executive Director Susan McNeil Schreyer at to obtain and complete a registration form with payment ASAP.


Each year the San Diego County Fair selects neighborhoods from throughout San Diego County to be featured on 1,000+ Street Banners to celebrate the region’s largest fair. The 30 x 94 banners advertise the Fair’s theme and feature prominent photos of neighborhood people.

In a partnership with the Fair, the Mission Hills BID wishes to recognize Mission Hills business members in our community with a professional photo session.  The photos will be placed on vibrant San Diego County Fair banners.  See above registration form example with banner image. The 2019 Fair theme is “Ozsome” inspired by L. Frank Baum’s Classic Tale, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”

In Mission Hills the banners will be displayed atop Mission Hills lamp posts, mid-May until just after July 4, (at least 7 weeks!) replacing the usual neighborhood banners. There is a two person per banner photo maximum.  A small pet you can hold is an acceptable addition. Large company logos on clothing,”Oz -themed costumes”, SMALL SIGNS, and PROPS are encouraged.


(ASAP please contact Mission Hills BID Executive Director, Susan McNeil Schreyer to obtain, complete, and return an application form.)  

On Friday February 22 between 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM
A professional photographer will take photos over a two hour period at a single location in Mission Hills.

Once your form and fee have been collected, the photo session location and a 5-minute time slot will be offered to you.


Restaurants may wish to feature their chef showing off a delectable platter of food.  Florists may wish to hold a large and colorful floral arrangement.  A good example featuring Mission Hills BID board President J. Daniel Geddis and his businesses mascot Mr. Brambles, both of Team D&B at One Mission Realty, is included above in the San Diego County Fair Banner Photo example registration form.


Here’s the plan:

Please message Susan McNeil Schreyer at if you wish to participate, or if you have questions. She will reply promptly. Emails are better than a phone call.

$75 cash or check to the Mission Hills BID secures a banner and photo session.  Once we hear from you, Susan will personally stop by your business to pick up the complete registration form and collect the $75 registration fee. Space is limited to 69 banners/69 photos. First come first serve. Last year we sold every space. If for any reason all banners are not purchased, a single business may purchase up to four (4) banners at the rate of $75 per banner.

The deadline for completion of forms and funds is Friday, February 15, 2019.

Please spread the word to your Mission Hills business owner neighbors!

We are hoping you will participate and look forward to connecting with you very soon!
