State Fair announces Golden Bear award

Celebrating its 160th anniversary, the State Fair is one of California’s oldest icons and has grown and thrived in large part through the contributions of individuals and businesses.

In recognition of significant contributions, the State Fair announced Save Mart Supermarkets as the recipient of the 2013 Golden Bear Award, which acknowledges individuals and businesses that have furthered the fair’s mission of showcasing California.

Save Mart Supermarkets has been an integral partner with the California State Fair for more than 12 years.

Celebrating its 60th Anniversary, this family-owned grocery business established in 1952 is innovative, community oriented and dedicated to the mission of the State Fair and its focus on agriculture.

The California State Fair commercial wine competition is annually sponsored by Save Mart Supermarkets.

Members of the company’s leadership team have produced and operated the Gold Medal Wine Garden which has become a destination place for fairgoers during the 17-day event in Sacramento.

With Save Mart Supermarkets active engagement, the Wine Garden showcases California’s expansive commercial wine industry and the fair’s wine judging results.

Tens of thousands of fairgoers have enjoyed the wine tasting and educational experience as a result of their efforts.

The centerpiece of the State Fair agricultural programs is the award-winning “State Fair Farm,” also presented by Save Mart Supermarkets demonstrating its dedication to promoting California Grown products.

Save Mart Supermarkets has also long been a part of the California Grape and Gourmet. The company’s direct involvement with providing content and networking connections for the California Wine Magazine produced by the fair have made that publication a “must have” for California wine consumers.

“Save Mart Supermarkets’ partnership with the State Fair further demonstrates its commitment to giving back to more than 200 communities it serves,” stated Rick Pickering, CEO California State Fair. “Many positive memories are made at the State Fair due to Save Mart Supermarkets support, memories that keep folks coming back year after year.”

The Golden Bear award will be presented at the California State Fair Gala on June 28 at Cal Expo. The gala hosts an elegant evening of gourmet food, auctions, entertainment, awards and over $33,000 in scholarship presentations to youth.

The 2013 California State Fair is July 12 to 28 at Cal Expo in Sacramento. Visit bigfun.org for more information.
