Is the Sacramento County Fair back in 2022? What to know



The Sacramento County Fair is back after two years of pandemic delays.

With a “banding together” theme, the Sacramento County Fair will return to Sacramento’s Cal Expo Memorial Day weekend, May 26 to May 30 with food and entertainment.

The Sacramento County Fair was established in 1937, according to its website. And since then, the family-friendly event — filled with competitions, agriculture displays, activities, food and more — traditionally takes place on Memorial Day weekend.
