The Tammie Arwood Memorial Awards are special recognitions that will be chosen by fairgoers —  one from the Best of Show winners in foods (baked, preserved and goat by-products) and another from the Best of Show winners in fibers (quilts, needlework, crafts and sewing).

El Dorado County Fair, Master Food Preservers, Gold Bug Quilts, Needlework Guild and the baking department are proud to sponsor these Golden Johnnies to recognize and remember Arwood, a woman who did so much for the fair including helping make the quilts area such a beautiful and welcoming place.

When visiting the fair be sure to drop by the Home Arts building to vote for your favorites.

Other People’s Choice voting opportunities during fair are:
• 75th anniversary Exhibit People’s Choice in the Home Arts Building
• People’s Choice Best Photo sponsored by the Camera Club in the Fine Arts Building

 

Attractions

Sudsy’s Barn is a play-based, interactive hand-washing attraction that makes hand washing fun. It’s a miniature waterpark with soap.

Instead of faucets, water comes from farm animals that talk. In place of faucets a goat pours water from a watering can, a cow pours from a milk carton, a horse offers water from a hose in its mouth, and an alpaca ‘spits’ playfully. Instead of sinks, there are farm troughs.

Water is activated by foot pedals, except from the horse, where the sink is ADA-compliant and water is activated via motion sensor. Soap drops from flowerpots. Hand dryers are built into chicken coops. Plus, for quick clean ‘touch free’ hand sanitizing, dispensers are built into beehives mounted to each side of the barn.

Sponsored by Marshall Medical Center and Marshall Foundation, Sudsy’s Barn is good clean fun.

The El Dorado County Library Bookmobile will be at the fair Thursday, Friday and Sunday from noon-7 p.m., so people can browse inside and sign up for library cards.

During the fair, there will be activities for kids including a dramatic play area with props; a sensory play area with water and bubbles; building blocks and Legos; a reading nook with handouts about the library’s Summer Reading Program and more. The library’s booth will be open from noon-7 p.m. every day and each will be located near the Equestrian Arena.

First 5’s Baby Corner is back by popular demand. Parents with infants — look for the log cabin for the Baby Corner sponsored by First 5, a comfortable place for parents to change, breastfeed or bottle-feed your baby.

Test your strength with the Hangtown Hammer and smash a car for charity at the fair. Fairgoers can take a swing with the Hangtown Hammer at the Hangtown Body Shop booth on the main lawn. What kind of dent can you make? Find out for $1 per swing.

Hangtown Hammer is open for smashing, Friday, June 13 through Sunday, June 15 from 2-8 p.m. Proceeds support Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises Inc. (MORE). MORE is dedicated to supporting persons with disabilities, serving more than 200 individuals monthly. Services include direct training in social, living and vocational skills.

The El Dorado County Fair, “Father’s, Photos & Fair” is through Father’s Day, Sunday, June 15 at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds, 100 Placerville Drive in Placerville.

Tickets are pre-sale: $8 regular, $6 junior and senior. During the fair tickets are: $9 regular, $7 junior and senior. Attendees with Active Duty Military ID get in free.
Parking is $6 per car.
