Once again, the Solano County exhibit at the California State Fair won top awards – this years the Gold and Best Visitor’s Experience awards. The state fair is in the middle of its two week run, concluding Sunday, July 30 at CalExpo in Sacramento.
The Solano exhibit has taken home top awards for the past 15 years. The exhibit – “the Seeds of Solano County” –
highlights the county’s rich agricultural history with a series of life-size seed packets, including the County’s industry, entertainment, recreation and tourism destinations. The exhibit is visited by tens of thousands of Californian’s who visit the fair every day.
The 360-degree exhibit features a walk-through experience, including a series of windows, panels and stages, each promoting unique attractions within the county using video, sounds, lighting and whimsical displays. Highlights include Solano’s many outdoor recreation gems, rich agricultural crops, industries, including Travis Air Force Base, tourist attractions, wineries, breweries, art scenes and entertainment and dining hot spots in the Counties seven cities.
Visitors can pick up educational brochures to learn more about the County in which they live, or plan to visit in the future. They can also enjoy FREE samples from Jelly Belly.
In addition to the Gold and Best Visitor Experience awards, Solano County has a long standing tradition of taking home the “People’s Choice Award,” with more than 12 victories in the past 16 years. Determined by fairgoers, the award goes to the county with the most votes during the fair’s run. The recipient of the 2017 People’s Choice Award will be announced later this month.
After the conclusion of the California State Fair, the Solano County exhibit will be on display at the Solano County Fair, hosted August 2 – 6 at the Solano County Fairgrounds, 900 Fairgrounds Drive in Vallejo.
