Now is the time to pull together all those projects, preserves and recipes and to get your green thumb going in those gardens for the best blooms and vegetable crop for the Amador County Fair.
Showing off your handiwork, preserves, art and photography, garden produce, flowers, jewelry and more in hopes of winning a blue ribbon is a tradition for many people entering the Amador County Fair.
According to Diane Bennett, creative arts’ exhibits supervisor, one creative woman Doris Helms has been entering everything from preserves to needle arts for more than half a century. In 2011 she was honored with a Blue Ribbon Award from the Western Fairs Association.
Most exhibit categories at the Amador County Fair are due at the fairgrounds in Plymouth between Saturday, July 20 and Tuesday, July 23.
Fresh flowers and garden produce are not due until opening day of the fair, Thursday, July 25.
Judging commences on July 21 depending on the category. Homemade and commercial wines and beer have already been received.
The complete receiving and judging schedule is in the exhibitors handbook which is available online at AmadorCountyFair.com or by calling the fair office entry department at 209-245-6921.
