The California State Fair is in full swing at Cal Expo. The rides, games, and funnel cakes await you!

If you’re on a tight budget this year (like most of us!), there are ways to get in for free!

Tomorrow, July 18 and on July 25, Kids 12 and under get free admission. Plus, rides cost $2 for everyone.

Monday, July 24 is SMUD Giving Monday. If you take 5 non-perishable food items to Cal Expo before 3pm, you can get in free!
