New this Year at the CA State Fair

Food has always been a big part of the CA State Fair, but this year they have decided to make it more of a featured highlight by a slight addition to the name and offering a Food Festival Pass.  The Food Festival Pass is $28 ($40 value) and allows you to use 4 special tickets for select food items/location.
(previously CA State Fair; now CA State Fair & Food Festival).

Instead of the costly weekend fireworks the CA State Fair & Food Festival has partnered with DISH to offer a Drone Light Up the Sky Show. Drone light shows are more environmentally safe, perfect for families and offer an alternative to those who are sensitive to the loud noise of fireworks. This show will be available on weekend nights and subject to change depending on weather & technology.
