Next weekend kicks off the 2016 California State Fair and we want to see you there! We will be showcasing some of the best things Calaveras County has to offer with great giveaways.
For starters, our partners at the Calaveras Winegrape Alliance have joined us to help spread the excitement about our unique wine and food scene. Ten varietals of wine, many of which are lesser-known grapes that love the mountain soils of the Sierra foothills, will be featured on fun, wine-bottle shaped giveaways. See our recent article about what makes Calaveras wines unique. Local chefs have created recipes featuring each of the ten wines, and when you come see us at the booth you can walk away with all ten recipes and our beautifully designed cards that tell you where in Calaveras you can find each wine.
This year’s Calaveras exhibit in the Counties Exhibit building also features Mark Twain, the Calaveras County Fair and Jumping Frog Jubilee, as well as the upcoming Mark Twain Wild West Fest, slated for the third weekend in October. This event features the Mark Twain Nugget – a genuine gold nugget from California’s Gold Country worth more than $5,000 that will be raffled off that weekend. Our booth will include information on how to enter the raffle for a chance to win this amazing prize!
If you’re planning a future trip to Calaveras County, or you’re just discovering all there is to do here, the State Fair is a great place to get insider ideas for your itinerary and meet some of the great folks who call this place home. See you at the fair!
