The California Mid-State Fair is pleased to welcome you and your family to our fairgrounds this July. We have packed our daily schedule with activities and entertainment for all ages. Gates open at Noon each Friday, Saturday and Sunday and feature special attractions like the Diaper Dash and Kids Pedal Tractor Races!

New this year, Barnyard Races, will be an ongoing attraction at South Gate and is a fun and interactive show for people of all ages and takes place at various times throughout the Fair. Cheer on the pigs, turkeys, goats, and ducks as they race for victory.

Catch the Pacific Animal Production Show at various times throughout the day on Headliner Stage, followed by public contests where you can compete to win prizes!

Starting at 6:00 pm each night, visit the Horse Stalls to watch the Draft Horse Demonstrations by Harris Stage Lines before grabbing a sweet treat on your way to the carnival! Don’t forget about Cub County, a special carnival area for the littlest of Fair goers.

Next Friday, July 28, is Kids Day, presented by KSBY-TV, at the California Mid-State Fair! Gates open at Noon, and the day kicks off with free admission for kids ages 12 and under.
