    I have so many fond memories I am not sure I can pick a favorite. I guess I will go with seeing Audio Adrenaline a few years ago with cow bell. I think that is the only non Weird Al concert I have enjoyed there fair time or not.

    I am getting excited for this years adventures! Maybe we will see you there.

    My most memorable experience of the California State Fair is the time I ordered a glass of wine at the wine bar, got a splinter underneath my pinky finger nail from the bar’s wood paneling, passed out from the pain, peed my pants while unconscious and rode in the emergency golf cart to the first aid station. Later that evening, at Sutter General Hospital, my fingernail was removed to get the splinter out. (Thankfully, the California State Fair reimbursed my medical co-pays.)

    Hello! I’m from New York state originally, but since I met my fiance from California back near the beginning of 2011, I’ve lived in California (about an hour out from Sacramento) during the summer. I love it here, and I’ve made some of the best memories with my fiance, but unfortunately I’ve never been able to attend the Fair yet!

    I have gone to the New York State Fair before, and I adore looking at all the farm animals. My fiance and I live on a ranch and we have goats and sheep and other animals ourselves, so we really love to be around animals. I’m hoping I can get a T-shirt from the California fair because I have one already from the New York fair, and it would be fun to collect state fair T-shirts!

    County and State fairs have been yearly adventures for my family since I was a young gal.

    Since the 60’s we would hop in the back of dad’s ’57 Ranchero and head to the Santa Clara County Fair to devour strawberry shortcake, polish sausage and HUGE glazed donuts.

    For the past 27 years, hubby and I and now the kiddos, meet up with friends to attend the CA State Fair. I have many fond memories but the one that sticks in my mind is the time our friend purchased a 30 pound bucket of cleaning solution. He was tired of carrying it, so bribed my six year old son to carry it for him. My son took him up on the offer and carried it all the way to the car. He was totally exhausted but happy as a clam when he claimed his prize.

    As a child, my parents never really took me or any of my siblings to the fair and the chances of going to the fair was very slim. I remember going once or twice when the fair was held closeby. But that was about it. Not until last year when it all changed. I went with my best friend. Although, we were suppose to meet up with some friends of ours, we couldn’t find them and so then we decided to just enjoy the fair by ourselves, so we did. We did a lot of walking also, thinking and debating if we really want to get on rides or not, but we finally did. We went on several rides and even though we couldn’t find our other friends, we had fun and made it worth memorable. I don’t think I would have this much fun and memorable if it wasn’t for my best friend.

    I got lost at the state fair when I was a toddler about 5 years old. I remember the nice fair staff who kept me safe until my parents came and got me. They gave me a ball and took a picture. It was a cute picture until my sister tore it up. Even though that picture meant alot to me and I don’t have it anymore I still have my memory of that lost day!

    I remember the year mom and I discovered the Pita Pit…Huge pita sandwhiches that were just a tad spicy.
