Seeking Next Young Superstar! The California State Fair knows there are a lot of talented kids in the Golden State. That’s why the State Fair is once again inviting them to show off their skills by competing in the 6th annual Kids Talent Show at the California State Fair.

Preliminary auditions will be held on Saturday, May 28th at the Sacramento County Fair at Cal Expo from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Any California child aged 15 and younger is invited to participate. Talent should come prepared to perform a 2-minute audition piece live in front of the judges. Singers and dancers 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 on July 26th, 2011. The top three finalists in July will share a prize pot that includes cash, other surprises and the official title of “State Fair’s Most Talented Kid.”

Last year’s Kids Talent Show winner was Leon Burns, selected from more than 125 other contestants from all over Northern California and Nevada. Burns won the recognition for his championship hip hop dance moves.

“We are looking for kids that represent California’s wonderful diversity and world class talent. 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. “This is a positive, confidence-building experience for these youngsters.”

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 e-mailing by Thursday, May 26. Those who call in advance will be guaranteed an audition time, while walk-ins may not receive one.

Admission to the County Fair is FREE for Kids Talent Show participants and one parent or guardian as long as the child is registered in advance. General Admission to the County Fair for other talent show viewers is $3 for adults aged 13 – 61, FREE for kids ages up to 12 years old and FREE for seniors over the age of 62. Parking is $10.

The 2011 California State Fair will be held from July 14th to 31st at Cal Expo in Sacramento, CA
