Dear California State Fair Fans:
While we had remained hopeful that the CA State Fair & Food Festival would be able to continue our 166-year tradition this summer of showcasing the best of California and entertaining the state’s residents and families, it’s clear the impact of COVID-19 will continue to be felt for the foreseeable future and that large gatherings should be postponed at this time.
Based on the advice of health experts and the continued guidance issued by the governor, the Cal Expo Board has decided to cancel the CA State Fair and Food Festival scheduled for July 17-August 2 until 2021. The health and safety of the community, our guests, and staff is our number one priority, and we agree with the measured, scientific approach that’s been implemented by the governor to combat COVID-19.
Our staff is working diligently on a strategy to safely reopen when appropriate and we look forward to the time when we can all gather again safely to celebrate the great things Californians have done and will do in the future.
Please stay safe and healthy and maintain physical distancing.
