Dixon May Fair 2014

Welcome to the Dixon May Fair ‘Best of Show’

By From page DMF3 | May 04, 2014

DIXON — The Dixon May Fair is honoring the talents of the community with the 2014 “Best of Show” theme.

“We want to celebrate all of our friends and neighbors who bring their best garden produce, crafts, quilts, baked goods, preserves, art and photography, wines, animals and more to compete in the Dixon May Fair,” said Patricia Conklin, CEO.

As one of the oldest fairs in California, the Dixon May Fair has a long tradition of showcasing the amazing talents of the residents of Solano County. The Best of Show theme honors the competitive exhibits and livestock shows that are an integral part of any county fair.

There are hundreds of categories that have changed over the years to reflect the lifestyles and skills of the community.

For example, recent competition has included technology skills, organic gardening, home wine-making and digital photography. Traditional categories such as jams and jellies, pies, quilts and garden produce remain popular.

Anyone can enter their project, produce, art and photography in the fair – as you stroll through the buildings, make your plans to participate in 2015. The entry guide is available for viewing online or call the fair office for a copy.
