If you live in California, you’ve been to the California State Fair atleast once. Well, the State Fair is back, starting Friday 14th and ending July 30th. It has some really awesome events and attractions this year! We’ve compiled a list of stuff you and the whole family can enjoy!
1. Wienerschnitzel Wiener Dog Races – Saturday, July 15
You read that right. A Wiener Dog race is coming to the California State Fair and we could not be any more excited. Make sure you come out to watch and cheer on the tiny legged dogs while they race their little hearts out.
2. Save Mart Pie Eating Contest – Tuesday, July 18
Who doesn’t love a good ol’ fashioned pie eating contest? Jenna Rae sure does! She even submitted an application to participate in the contest this year. Let the best eater win!

Happy Birthday to our favorite golden bear! Everyone is invited to come celebrate this special occasion where there will be live entertainment, music, and best of all… FREE cupcakes!
4. $2 Taste of the Fair – Wednesdays and Thursdays
