The California State Fair once again is inviting talented kids to show off their skills by competing in the third annual Kids Talent Show at the California State Fair.

Preliminary auditions will be held May 24 at the Sacramento County Fair at Cal Expo from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Any California-resident child age 15 and younger is invited to participate. Participants should come prepared to perform a two-minute audition piece live in front of the judges. Singers and dancers are preferred, though other talents will be accepted as well. The top finalists from the auditions will be asked to compete live at the California State Fair in August. The top three finalists in August will share a prize pot that includes cash, prizes and the official title of “State Fair’s Most Talented Kid.”

“We are looking for kids that represent California’s diversity and talent, so we urge anyone with a skill or a love for performing to come to the audition and give it a shot,” said Norb Bartosik, CEO and general manager of the California State Fair.

Auditions will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants or their parents can reserve an audition space in advance by calling (916) 274-6180 or emailing Those who call in will be guaranteed an audition time, while walk-ins may not receive one. Admission to the county fair is free, but there is a charge for parking.
