Yolo County’s State Fair exhibit wins the gold…and two Blue Ribbons!

Yolo County adds three more awards to its impressive collection of California State Fair exhibit recognitions. On opening day of the state fair, judges announced the Yolo County 2016 exhibit was awarded the gold ribbon, as well as blue ribbons in the categories of “best craftsmanship” and “best of produce, products or artifacts”.

With this year’s counties exhibit theme, “California Delivers”, Yolo County showcased how it is taking agritourism to new heights by “delivering” food and fun with its vast array of festivals, farm tours and events year round. As is the tradition for Yolo County, the exhibit integrates a learning environment with whimsical characters, animated displays, and a bounty of local produce and products.

“Our county is the farm to every fork,” said Jim Provenza, chair of the Yolo County Board of Supervisors. It is not only about fun, food and festivals, but also the innovation and preservation behind sustainable agriculture. We have a lot to be proud of here in Yolo County and are honored to be recognized once again by the California State Fair for telling our story in this way.”
