By From page A3 | August 23, 2014

DIXON — With walnuts and almonds as two of the top 10 commodities grown in Solano County, the Dixon May Fair says that it is “Nuttin’ But Fun!”

The fair announced its 2015 fair theme this week, unveiling new artwork by Steve Dana that depicts a cast of farm animal characters that have become familiar to fair visitors.

“As an agriculture-based fair in Solano County, we saw the opportunity to promote a local commodity and educate the public about our walnut and almond crops while having some fun at the same time,” said Patricia Conklin, CEO of the Dixon May Fair, in a press release.

The Dixon May Fair has been supporting agriculture in Solano County for 140 years.

The most recent crop report shows walnuts as the top crop with sales of $55.435 million and almonds ranked seventh with sales of $17.113 million.

Fairgoers can expect educational displays and exhibits with themes that tout “Nuttin’ But Fun!” as well as theme-based categories in the fair’s competitive exhibit program. Suggestions may be sent to exhibits representative Sandy Bonesteel at [email protected]

The 2015 Dixon May Fair is scheduled May 7-10. For more information, visit www.DixonMayFair.com or follow Dixon May Fair on Facebook.
