Insider Show Tips:
Arrive early and come back the next day for the best deals.
With over 150 dealers there is a lot to see! Parking is $5 per vehicle in the lot next to the Event Center with additional parking on Gregory Avenue. Our dealers restock overnight so you'll find tons of new items on Sunday that were not available on Saturday. When you pay to park, you will receive a receipt that has a $2 OFF Coupon valid for the July 2018 California Mid-State Fair.
Check out the new Mega Maps.
Instead of passing out brochures at the entrances, you will find new Mega Maps stationed throughout the show grounds. Look for the YOU ARE HERE chicken pin to get your bearings! Smaller maps with the names and booth numbers of our dealers will be available at each Mega Map station.
Dress in layers and wear comfy shoes.
The weather is expected to be in the high 80's low 90's, so come prepared! You'll be covering lots of ground as you hunt for those new treasures so comfortable shoes are a must.
Cash is the great negotiator.
Many of our vendors don’t accept credit cards, so bring plenty of cash. If you want the best deal on a treasure, cash is your best option. There is an ATM onsite should you find yourself needing more cash.
Come hungry and thirsty.
Visit the Coop Cafe for breakfast, lunch and snacking options, stop by our food area for a quick bite, or quench your thirst at our bar with the perfect Bloody Mary, Mimosa, or other adult or non-alcoholic beverage.
Don't sweat the small stuff, or the large.
Large items can be held in the Pickin's Holding Area at no charge. Our crew will even help load large items into your car from our loading zone. You are welcome to bring your own cart, however oversized carts are discouraged.
