California State Fair Gala


The California State Fair Gala is an elegant evening of gourmet food, wonderful auction items, entertainment, awards, and a blue ribbon salute to “Celebrating the Best in California.” 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 begins with a VIP reception where sponsors can mingle with our distinguished award winners and scholarship recipients. Following the VIP reception, The Best of California Tasting will celebrate State Fair award-winning wines, craft beers, olive oil and delicious California cheeses. The main event will include a farm-to-fork dinner prepared by Spectra, an awards presentation, and an exhilarating live auction.
