California letters at cal expo's main gate

As part of the rich history behind the California letters, originally debuting in February 2001 at Disney California Adventure theme park, these iconic symbols have made their way to Cal Expo. The letters, generously donated by the Disneyland Resort to the Friends of the California State Fair in May 2012, have become a beloved part of the Fairgrounds.

Placed in front of Cal Expo in July 2013, just in time for the 2013 California State Fair, they stand as a tribute to the spirit and heritage of California. Join us in celebrating their anniversary and experience the magic of the CA State Fair & Food Festival during this special flash sale event.
