California State Fair Gala

Due to COVID and staff shortage Cal Expo will not be hosting the California State Fair Gala this year. You will still be able to find award-winning commercial wine, craft beer, extra virgin olive oil, and cheeses produced in California during the CA State Fair, July 15-31, 2022. Check back with us next year.

About the California State Fair Gala

The California State Fair Gala is an elegant evening of special awards, gourmet food, wonderful auction items, entertainment, awards, and a blue ribbon salute to “Celebrating the Best in California.” The Agriculturalist of the Year, Agricultural Progress and Golden Bear Awards will be presented to deserving recipients in front of distinguished guests. It is also a night for making dreams come true as funds raised benefit the Friends of the California State Fair Scholarship Program.

The evening will begin with a Best of California Reception where you can mingle with our distinguished award winners and scholarship recipients and taste California State Fair award-winning wines, craft beers, olive oil and cheese. The main event will include a farm-to-fork dinner prepared by Spectra, an awards presentation, and an exhilarating live auction.
