The Church and State Fair
Appearances: "Notapusy"

The Church and State Fair is a Newport Beach event. When the State Fair was cancelled due to low funds, the wealthy evangelist Robert Patterson (parody of real-world Pat Robertson) funded the fair and was thus named The Church and State Fair". Many traditional fair events were re-imagined to incorporate religious doctrine. ("Notapusy")
