    159th Annual California State Fair

    BIG FUN for Everyone: In addition to this year's new attractions, the State Fair will focus its traditional exhibits and competitions on recreation, sports, and tourism that make California an adventure capitol of the world. The 159th California State Fair theme is FUN that Moves You! It's all about BIG FUN, and this year’s entertainment, exhibits, and coming attractions are predicted to get you out of your chair and to the State Fair for an exciting summer experience!
