Visit us often – we’re working hard to keep you up to date on everything CFSA! Think of CFSA's website like your front row seat to our news and events!


We may not believe that “conversate” is a real word (regardless of what some music celebrities may think), but at CFSA we do believe in the spirit of conversation and open communication – especially two-way communication.

So, let’s talk! We’re pleased to share information about what’s going on at CFSA, what we’re doing and planning as well as where we’re going, and hope you’ll let us know your thoughts, ideas and what we can do to better help you with the day-to-day operations of your fairs and fairgrounds.

You’ll find us online, here on our website and on Facebook: California Fair Services Authority (CFSA). Make sure you follow Pass it On! a weekly write up of innovations and ideas discovered by Rebecca Desmond, CFSA’s Deputy Executive Director, at fairgrounds in and outside of California.

You’ll find an archive of our news releases in News and Events.

And if there’s a particular member of our staff you’d like to contact, we have a convenient staff list as well as a contact list for our board of directors.

We also post copies of our monthly email newletter (now in its 22nd year!), fyi (Fairs Year-round Iinformation), and have an archive of our annual reports. If you’d like to sign up for the newsletter, please send an email to Melissa Thurber with your request.
