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.

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.
