California Pacific International Exposition Stamp

US Postage Stamps: 1935


California Pacific International Exposition Stamp

The California Pacific Exposition stamp was issued on May 29, 1935 to commemorate the exposition of the same name that was held in San Diego, California.  The stamp shows the Exposition grounds at Balboa Park with Point Loma and the San Diego Bay in the background.

The primary goal of the exposition was to promote San Diego, but it also commemorated the 400th anniversary of Francisco de Coronado’s discovery of the Pacific Ocean.  The exposition was open for over a year (with three months off during California’s rainy winter season) and during that time over seven million people from around the world attended.  The California Pacific Exposition was held at Balboa Park, the same site as the 1915 Panama-California Exposition.  Many of the original buildings from both expositions are still being used to this day.
