Plans for Cal Expo were inaugurated in 1948 with the purchase of 1,000 acres of land along the American River. Cal Expo remained on the drawing board until the 1960s, when construction finally began. The State Fair said goodbye to Stockton Boulevard in 1967 and moved into its current home the following year.
