The Fair will provide display options and will integrate your unique products into the space, but your display items are welcomed upon request.

We are excited to share the hidden talents of our local companies and artisans with the visitors to the California Mid-State Fair. This unique opportunity is an affordable option for smaller, unique businesses to sell their goods at the Fair.
