California State Fair

From July 14-30, California comes together in a time-honored tradition known as the California State Fair. It's a chance to celebrate the state's agriculture, arts, food, horseracing, and diverse population—and to have a lot of fun.

Starting at the main gate, the California Letters lead visitors to a picturesque view, where they can play the #50thFairhunt game on the app and win State Fair Swag—and enjoy a musical performance by the likes of Trace Adkins, Melissa Etheridge, or Brian McKnight—spread across multiple stages. Livestock shows, horse races, and cooking competitions crown winners throughout the Fair, while other areas such as the wine and beer areas and Expo Center focus on education in a fun, interactive way.

The California State Fair can be considered a giant food festival, with hundreds of food options ranging from funnel cakes to wood-fired pizza. Samples of craft beer and award-winning wine make a refreshing complement to any meal.

These are just some of the things that make the California State Fair so special. Here are a few more:

  • Celebrating their 50th Anniversary at Cal Expo- The fair was established in 1854 with just a few agricultural displays.
  • Home of one of the most prestigious Commercial Wine, Olive Oil, Cheese and Beer competitions in the nation.
  • It houses one of the only operational monorails in the country.
