Plans remain in full swing for the annual State Fair, July 17- August 2, 2020.  Competitive Entries have already come in from around the State and we hope that you will enter as well.  The majority of Competitive Entries are judged and the winners announced in advance of the Ca State Fair.

We are hopeful that the current COVID-19 emergency will subside before this summer.  However, should a decision be made to cancel the 2020 CA State Fair & Food Festival, awards will be issued to entries that have already been judged, and no refunds of entry fees will be made for categories that have been judged.  We will refund entry fees for those competitions that have not yet been judged should a decision to cancel the CA State Fair & Food Festival be made.

For more than 160 years, the California State Fair has been showcasing the best of the best. We encourage individuals and commercial producers to show off their talents in a variety of competitive exhibits from baking to wine making to fine arts and more! You can win bragging rights and cash prizes by entering our many competitions.
