CA State Fair & Food Festival

Jul 18, 2022

Cal Expo is home to the California State Fair and hosts hundreds of other signature events yearly. 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.

The mission of the California Exposition & State Fair is to create a State Fair experience reflecting California, including its industries, agriculture, diversity of its people, traditions, and trends shaping its future supported by year-round events.
