If you are unable to visit the Heritage Exhibit, you can still see the 2023 Heritage Exhibit by taking the virtual tour. Items are presented by each decade since the 1940’s. You can see photos of the State House, the installation of the iconic fairgrounds arch, and many other events and activities held at the fairgrounds.
Finally, we have made tremendous progress this year and have found a home to archive and curate all the Fair and Fairgrounds memorabilia we are receiving. Our next goal is to save and rebuild the California State House to its original form and have a permanent museum. Join the journey on establishing this showcase museum.
Looking forward to seeing you at the Fair!
