    For more than 160 years, the California State Fair has showcased the best of California hosted at Cal Expo and it’s the largest annual event in our region.

    The seventeen-day California State Fair is a robust celebration of the State of California, its industries, agriculture and diversity of its people. For many the State Fair is the culmination of hard work throughout the year. For others, the State Fair is a family summer tradition of enjoyment with plenty of entertainment, fascinating exhibits, popular livestock venues and mouthwatering food!

  • About

    The construction of the memorial at Cal Expo began a year after the attack when Cal Expo board member Larry Davis personally acquired and donated to Cal Expo 125,000 pounds of wreckage from the World Trade Center. A massive I-beam extracted from Ground Zero, which had been a horizontal support beam from the North Tower, was among the debris. Davis personally arranged to be shipped via rail to California.

    Through private donations to the California State Fair Memorial Plaza Foundation, a 501c(3), the exhibit has been expanded to include additional elements. Central to the exhibit is a beautiful fountain including a granite ball inscribed with all of the names of the September 11 victims. Additional features include a carillon bell tower, reflections of the World Trade Center, and individual memorials to Flight #77 which crashed into the Pentagon and Flight #93 aborted in a field in Pennsylvania.

    This permanent structure at Cal Expo is open to the public during the California State Fair, on September 11 each year, and upon request of the Administration/Event Planning Departments.

  • About

    In 1992, the Sacramento Police / Sheriff Memorial Foundation as formed to perpetually honor Sacramento police officers and sheriff’s deputies who have been killed or have died in the line of duty. After nearly 10 years, the actual Memorial was completed and dedicated within the Woodlake Park, located at 500 Arden Way in the City of Sacramento.

    Unfortunately, the names of 31 law enforcement officers from the Sacramento Police Department, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office are enrolled at this Memorial Site.  Annually, the Sacramento Police / Sheriff Memorial Foundation remembers the fallen officers enrolled every May in a small Remembrance Ceremony held during the California Peace Officer’s Memorial Week.
