Cal Expo is a 700-acre multi-plex designed to host the Annual California State Fair and Agriculture. Spectra at Cal Expo is extremely proud of our successful Not-For-Profit Group Concessions Program, with multiple groups working events throughout the year both at State Fair and Papa Murphy's Park, proceeds go to the construction of community centers, help maintain youth sports leagues, as well as fund cheerleading and band group's camps and travel competitions. In addition to our NFP programs, Spectra continues to support the CA agricultural community by providing assistance with the production of Citywide Agricultural Awareness Programs and 4H Club annual fundraising livestock auctions. The California State Fair is an international award-winning fair, receiving top honors at the International Association of Fairs and Expositions out of more than 1,100 fairs worldwide. The California State Fair is dedicated as a place to celebrate the best the state has to offer in agriculture, technology, and the diversity of its people, traditions, and trends that shape the Golden State's future.

"Spectra regularly looks for ways to increase revenue in food and alcohol sales, as well as promote year round event events at Cal Expo and California State Fair. Given that Spectra operates at facilities across CA, they have been able to bring many third party partnerships to Cal Expo. In recent years alone this has resulted in Country in the Park, Global Winter Wonderland, Sac Mile AMA Racing and multiple CBS Radio Events. These events while benefiting Spectra, also benefit Cal Expo by bringing in significant streams of revenue for facility rentals and parking." - Rick Pickering, CEO, Cal Expo
