Body

The El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce has historically coordinated the funds and resources to develop, construct and insure the County of El Dorado's entry for the "Counties Exhibits" at the Annual California State Fair.

 

The Counties Exhibits at the California State Fair is a fun, interactive way to appreciate the best agricultural commodities and landscapes of many of the California counties all in one location. With the 2018 theme of “California - Create, Inspire & Innovate” representatives and builders from each of the participating counties create engaging exhibits that show the lasting impact of California’s counties. These exhibits are enjoyable, hands-on displays of different cultures and events from across the state. The "Counties Exhibits" provides each California county with an opportunity to encourage fairgoers to learn more about the travel opportunities throughout California and to discover the hidden treasures each county has to offer.

 

The Annual California State Fair "Counties Exhibits" is an opportunity for the El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce to showcase and promote the recreational, agricultural, business and rural community lifestyle opportunities that are available throughout the County of El Dorado.
