Press Release

(Woodland, CA) – The efforts of Yolo County shines once again as they add two more awards to its impressive collection of California State Fair exhibit recognitions.  On opening day of the state fair, judges announced the Yolo County 2017 exhibit was awarded the gold ribbon, as well as first place in the “Best Craftsmanship” category.

With this year’s counties exhibit theme, “Memories in the Making”, they were able to highlight both unique and historical attractions with an educational element, exciting outdoor rural adventures, high quality products and vibrant produce of our famous Yolo County producers.  There is something for fairgoers of all ages to visit, explore and enjoy.

This year’s display was made possible, thanks to the generous donations from: Bogle Vineyards, Cache Creek Casino Resort, California Agricultural Museum, Carvalho Family Wine, Chamberlain Farms, Clarksburg Wine Company, Cobram Estate Olive Oil, Davis Farmer’s Market, Frate Sole Olive Oil, Heringer Estates, Jones Visual Arts Group, Mariani Nuts, Matchbook Winery, Redwood Barn Nursery, Riverdog Farm, Seka Hills Olive Oil, Velocity Island Park, West Sacramento, Yocha Dehe Golf Club at Cache Creek Casino Resort, Yolo Arts Counsel, and Yolo Visitors Bureau.

“We are honored to be recognized once again by the California State Fair,” said Duane Chamberlain, chairman of the Yolo County Board of Supervisors.  “Yolo County has a rich agriculture history that we have worked so hard to preserve and share with others through our crops and products.  We are deeply committed to agriculture in Yolo County and are committed to continue preserving our agricultural lands so that our bounty can be shared by all in our region, state and the world.”
