Fairgoers will be offered a summer concert series and new attractions, including the first U.S. appearance of the “Days of the Dinosaur” exhibit with dinosaur robots, skeleton replicas and a kidsâ€™ archaeological dig. The fair also will have a new jungle adventure with reptiles, birds and amphibians; and an animation and pop culture exhibit.
The Fair finally decided to the move the dates to avoid back to school issues.
For the first time in more than 100 years, the California State Fair has moved off its traditional Labor Day schedule to a July event. An adventure will be waiting inside Cal Expo from Wednesday, July 14 to Sunday, August 1, a 19-day summer schedule that will no longer conflict with the busy back-to-school season.
