SACRAMENTO — The Sacramento County Fair is back again this year with fun, food and excitement — a great way to celebrate Memorial Day weekend at Cal Expo through Monday, May 27.

“The county fair is wholesome family fun and an important Memorial Day weekend event for parents and children,” said Pamela Fyock, Sacramento County Fair CEO. “It offers visitors both a fun and educational alternative to costly, crowded weekend events.”
