County fair wins awards

The 2009 San Diego County Fair was an award winner at both the 2009 International Association of Fairs and Expositions Convention and Trade Show, held Nov. 29 to Dec. 2 in Las Vegas, and the Western Fairs Association Convention and Trade Show, held Jan. 24 to 27 in Reno, Nev.

“Winning these prestigious awards is especially gratifying because there are some folks who do not see us as an agricultural event, and nothing can be further from the truth,” said Tim Fennell, CEO and general manager of the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which puts on the fair each year. “We are following our mission of the 22nd DAA and have proven excellence in San Diego County and the world.”

The theme for the 2010 San Diego County Fair is “Taste the Fun.” The fair will highlight local agriculture, local food producers, culinary arts and all things related to food. The fair runs from June 11 to July 5.
