Over thirty food vendors will have a special Food Festival item for you to eat by yourself or share! There’s something delicious for every palate.
From savory – like sweet BBQ pulled pork, to sweet – like the bacon and pecan cinnamon roll, and fried of course! – deep fried apple pie anyone?
Come visit all of our award-winning Food Festival Pass participants, see their well-deserved ribbons displayed at their booths and taste their delicious entries!
Here’s how it works:
Buy your Food Festival Pass for only $28 (a $40 value!) online or onsite inside the Main Gate.
You will receive 4 Food Festival Pass tickets to be redeemed at any of the participating vendors for items that have been entered into the Food Festival and Competition.
One ticket is good for one Food Festival item, each valued at $10.
Food Festival Pass tickets are transferable and may be used any day of the CA State Fair & Food Festival.
Download the CA State Fair app and map out your eating adventure!
