WACAC Fairs

WACAC’s annual College Fairs provides students with the opportunity to meet representatives from colleges and universities from all over the country and beyond. Eight locations throughout central and northern California typically hosts fairs in the Spring. The Las Vegas fair occurs in the Spring as well and Reno’s annual fair is usually in the Fall. College and university participants must be active WACAC members. Applications for membership may take up to one complete business week for approval so please plan accordingly if your college/university will be attending any of our fairs.
