The California State Convention is the largest gathering of the most active Democrats from around the state. This year the California Democratic Party (CDP) will hold two State Conventions - the Organizing Convention in May and the Endorsing Convention in November.  

Registration, Tickets & Hotels

The convention will be held at the Moscone Center, and discounted hotel rooms are available at Parc 55 and the Union Square Hilton.


The California Democratic Party has a list of recognized statewide caucuses, which are made up of individual members who share similar demographics and/or interests.  These caucuses have been formed to foster participation in the policy decisions and the outreach programs of the Party.

We’ll need more than 500 people like you to help with tasks ranging from assisting with events and receptions to registration and credentialing. 

Positions are available for a range of abilities and interests, and your volunteer credential will allow you access to all open events after you’ve served at least one shift.
