No single event showcases the diversity of our home county like the Solano County Fair, and no single attraction at the fair does that better than the popular Cultural Pavilion.

A collaborative effort of the Filipino Community of Solano County, the Solano County Black Chamber of Commerce and the Solano Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the exhibit features a colorful and diverse display of cultural history, art, crafts and entertainment.

The Cultural Pavilion had its start at the 2010 Solano County Fair and was called The Filipino Pavilion in honor of the first, and at the time, only organization participating in the exhibit.

“We wanted to start small and be successful, rather than start big and fail,” says Mike Paluszak, the fair’s general manager. “We were, and are, fortunate to have Norma Placido on our board of directors, who was instrumental in helping get the Cultural Pavilion started. It was a natural starting point for us since Norma is also the president of the Filipino Community of Solano County.”

After its first successful year showcasing one culture, the fair has added a new culture each year with the help and participation of organizations within Solano County.

The fair looks forward to continuing the growth of the Cultural Pavilion each year and welcomes the inclusion of additional groups who have the volunteer resources to participate. There is no cost for the organizations that join in presenting the Cultural Pavilion, but it does take a generous amount of volunteer effort to prepare the displays, staff the attraction during fair hours and coordinate entertainment to perform on the Cultural Pavilion Stage.

This year’s Cultural Pavilion Stage will include a wide variety of performances including Filipino dancers and singers, step dance groups, Mexican ballet folklorico, martial arts demonstrations, belly dancers, cultural music, Hawaiian dancers and more.
