California State Fair
Showcasing the best of California
For more than 160 years, the California State Fair has showcased the best of California. The seventeen-day Fair is a robust celebration of California, its industries, agriculture and diversity of its people. The California State Fair is a popular summer destination with plenty of entertainment, fascinating exhibits, popular livestock shows, mouthwatering food and the largest tasting of California award-winning wines. We look forward to seeing you at the 2016 California State Fair July 8-24 where we plan to make the best even better!

The California State Fair, Northern California’s premier summertime attraction, typically draws more than 750,000 attendees each year. The Fair has a wide range of attractions and activities for everyone including agricultural and art exhibits, specialty foods, horse racing, cooking, wine and beer competitions, thrill rides, and big name entertainment.
Cal Expo is home to the California State Fair and plays host to hundreds of other signature events each year. Featuring 350 beautifully landscaped acres, Cal Expo was initiated by Governor Pat Brown and opened by Governor Ronald Reagan in 1968. The current Cal Expo facilities were dedicated as a place to celebrate California’s achievements, agriculture, diversity of its people, traditions and trends that will shape the Golden State’s future.
