Cal Expo is home to the California State Fair and plays host to hundreds of other signature events each year. Featuring 350 beautifully landscaped acres, Cal Expo was initiated by Governor Pat Brown and opened by Governor Ronald Reagan in 1968. The current Cal Expo facilities were dedicated as a place to celebrate California's achievements, agriculture, diversity of its people, traditions and trends that will shape the Golden State's future.
Expo Center is made up of eight buildings linked together by a common outdoor brick plaza. With a total of 58,870 square feet, this aesthetically pleasing complex includes a surrounding lagoon, dramatic entry bridge and finished white walls and floors in all the buildings. The clean lines and high ceilings are perfectly suited for car shows, trade and consumer shows, art exhibits, fundraisers, banquets, meetings and conventions.
