(Sacramento, CA) - We wish to inform you that the California State Fair must once again postpone the Drone Light Show until further notice.
While the vendor selected to perform the show has resolved previously identified software issues, we are told more time is needed to install additional, necessary communication components to ensure the safe operation of the drone fleet.
The safety and welfare of our guests is our chief priority and we remain in close communication with the vendor to ensure the drone fleet will operate according to the highest safety standards.
A traditional and entertaining fireworks show will again be available to fairgoers this weekend on Friday and Saturday nights at 10 p.m. Still, our desire is to feature the drone light show during the final weekend, July 26th - July 28th, and showcase innovation as the Fair has done for more than 150 years.
