Ticket Refunds (Posted 5/28/20)
For those patrons who have not seen their ticket refund credit from the California Mid-State Fair on any current credit card documentation (July postings) please note the following information we received from Merchant Services Department when inquiring on your behalf:
For any current or closed credit card accounts, the issuing bank will know where to post the refund to even on a new replacement account. Each issuing bank could have different procedures, so any cardholder who has not seen or believes that they have not been issued their refund from the California Mid-State Fair will need to call the issuing bank to clarify.

According to our merchant services, the refunds are being processed in tonight’s “cycle”. Card issuing banks will be funded by tomorrow morning and the issuing banks could take up to 10 days to their cardholders. Again, this was a glitch in the transaction processing, and we apologize for the delay.
Refund Update: On June 9, 2020, the California Mid-State Fair issued refunds to all patron accounts who purchased their concert and/or admission tickets through our website or call center. However, due to an unforeseen internal issue at the credit card processing company, refunds were delayed. The processor is continuing to work on getting all refunds returned to patron’s credit card accounts as soon as possible. We apologize for the delay and want to assure you we are working diligently to resolve the issue.
As you, the California Mid-State Fair staff is saddened by the cancelation of our 2020 Fair and by the fact that we won’t be a part of your summer this year.
