The CA State Fair 2020 Media Credential application will be open soon.
The California State Fair values media coverage and encourages media to attend the CA State Fair to gather story content. To accommodate the needs of the media, the Cal Expo Media Center opens 30 days prior to the start of the annual California State Fair.
For public safety reasons, Media Credentials are only issued to working media as defined by this policy, and at the sole discretion of the CA State Fair. Media Credentials will not be granted to applicants that do not meet the established criteria.
A history of being granted Media Credentials to the CA State Fair DOES NOT GUARANTEE approval of a Media Credential for this year’s State Fair and does not waive the credential application and approval requirements. CA State Fair reserves the right to deny or revoke Media Credentials for any reason.
