My part in this yearly tradition is managing entries for the Culinary Arts Department, designing the exhibit and planning entertaining and educational programing for fair guests.
Creating the space where expert home bakers, eager children and talented table designers, show their efforts is my favorite yearly activity. It's hard to believe it takes eight months of preparation to put on a month long event, but the result is truly rewarding.
Why bring this up now?

Three words that defined the culinary
exhibit space were;
LIVE, EAT, GROW,
gardening, home cooking,
good food and enjoyment in sharing with the community.
The giant letters at the front of the building and on the stage were hand made by Cy Vojak at CR Studios.
