State Fair 2017

Join Us at the 2017 State Fair: July 14 to 30

Although the drought has ended in most of California, water conservation remains a priority, rain or shine. Join us at the California State Fair to discover ways you can reduce your water use through water-wise landscaping. Find us in the Farm every day from fair opening until 8:00 p.m.


Water-wise Gardens
Our award-winning water-wise gardens exhibit is a mainstay of the Cal Expo Farm area. Garden beds planted with native and other water-wise plants will provide inspiration for your home projects. New for 2017 are games for the whole family and a scavenger hunt with a poppy seed prize for the first 2,000 participants.

The Landscape Exhibit
Now in its second year, the landscape exhibit provides a step-by-step process for replacing your thirsty turf with water-wise and edible plants. Walk through the exhibit and ask volunteers questions about how you can save water and money by re-landscaping your yard. Rebates may be available for your project.
