As a demonstrator, you will have the chance to share your knowledge and expertise with visitors and educate them about your craft. This is also a great platform to network with fellow artists and enthusiasts, and display your work. If you’re passionate about your craft and love sharing it with others, consider becoming a demonstrator at the California State Fair and make a lasting impression on hundreds of thousands of visitors!

The Demonstrator Program strives to offer Fair visitors a variety of interesting and engaging demonstrations throughout the 17 days of the fair. We prefer that demonstration participation last a minimum of two consecutive days and can last up to 17 days.
