Solano County, CA – The 2014 Solano County Fair concluded its five day run on August 3, once again receiving many compliments and positive guest feedback for the variety and quality of entertainment, the cleanliness of the grounds and for being a safe, family-friendly event.  Total attendance reached 39,346, a modest 4.37% decrease compared to last year’s attendance of 41,144.  Although total attendance was slightly down, the Solano County Fair continues to be a strong draw for vendors with commercial space revenue increasing by 9.27% and carnival revenue remaining consistent with last year’s level.  “We continue to focus our Fair efforts on all things local and that is proving to be the right direction for our Fair,” stated Fair General Manager Mike Paluszak.  “The annual Solano County Fair is a fun, safe, community-wide event that is made possible through the shared efforts of the Fair and the many local groups, organizations and individuals that participated in the Fair whether that was in our competitive exhibits, livestock competitions, performance stages, Cultural Pavilion or County & Cities Expo.  We can’t say thank you enough for those partnerships and to our Fair guests for making this another successful year.”

Community participation in the Fair was strong again this year, allowing some key elements to see an increase in numbers.  One of the Fair’s greatest successes was the competitive livestock exhibits, culminating on the last day of the Fair with the Jack and Bernice Newell Junior Livestock Auction.  This year’s auction had 151 lots which, although down by two lots compared to last year, raised $108,695, a 16.1% increase over 2013.  Competitive exhibits also saw an increase this year with the number of entries up to 3,389 from 2,788 last year, a 21.6% increase.  “No other event showcases the talents of our community like the Solano County Fair,” commented Board of Directors President, Ray Bell.  “From quilts to photography to canned goods and so much more, this year’s competitive exhibit entries represented the wealth of artistic and technical skills of the citizens of our home county.”

It is anticipated that the Solano County Fair will be scheduled next year for the same time period it has run for the last four years: the end of July through the first weekend of August.  The 2015 dates will be finalized by the Solano County Fair Board of Directors in the coming months.  The focus will continue to be on being the Fair of, by and for Solano County, and on being the best entertainment value of the summer.
