The California Mid-State Fair announced it would restore some activity on the grounds this summer with a weekend activity of food and drive-in movie experiences, beginning June 26.

“The Paso Robles Event Center is offering the chance for you to get your Fair Food Fix for 2020, as well as have a little old-fashioned fun!”


Select Fair vendors will be offering food to-go, each Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Classic Fair-type offerings like corn dogs and funnel cakes, as well as to-go beverages, will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the south end of the Paso Robles Event Center. Park in the Pioneer Lot on 21st Street, walk onto the Fairgrounds and pick up your food to-go. Guests could also sit and eat on a picnic blanket or picnic table!



The carnival lot will be turned into a drive-in movie theater, with the ability to host up to 150 cars/trucks. Spaces will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, with autos being allowed to line up at the gate starting at 6:30 pm. The gates will open at 7:30 pm and the movie will begin at approximately 8:30 pm. Classic Fair-type offerings like corn dogs and funnel cakes will be available for purchase. Cost is $20 per vehicle (cash only please). Please check or the Fair’s social media for specific movies and more information.
