THE GREAT KERN COUNTY FAIR
PRESENTS OUR
99TH EXCITING YEAR
Kern County Fair started in 1916. There were some years (during the war)
when it was not held as an event (because of the war, etc.) However, it was
counted as being in existence. Hence: 2016 will be 100 years.
Sponsored by
the 15th District Agricultural Association
SEPTEMBER 23
THRU
OCTOBER 4, 2015
For the third year we are dedicating our catalog to our many volunteers both past and present
that are the lifeblood of our Exhibit department.
We have lost several of our dear volunteers in the past several years and sincerely do miss
them. Some are no longer with us and some have retired but they have contributed countless
hours setting up exhibits, making sure that their areas were neat and attractive and taking care
to answer countless questions from our wonderful fair-goers.
Many of our volunteers that are still working even take their vacation time to come and sit in
their departments to greet you. When you come to the fair this year, know that each and every
one of these dear people truly love the fair and being here for you.
See you at the Great Kern County Fair.

role in displaying this. Each Fair in which you participate has a unique, local agriculture flavor that
brings people together to celebrate the tradition and innovation of our great farmers and
ranchers.
Thank you for your support of California Fairs and for being an important part of California's

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Board of Directors would like to welcome all the exhibitors in livestock, culinary,
floriculture, hobbies and fine arts. Your exhibitions are the results of many hours of
preparation and represent the finest offerings of Kern County. Good luck with your projects
and best wishes for a fantastic fair experience.
It requires many dedicated individuals and a lot of hard work to produce a successful fair. We
are especially proud of our youth who utilize the opportunities provided by the fair to
participate in various agricultural events and programs. Whether you are staff, a volunteer,
exhibitor, sponsor or visitor, we deeply appreciate your participation and support of the Great
Kern County Fair. Without you the Fair would never be the “Best in the West”.

The directors of the l5th District Agricultural Association are appointed by the Governor of the State of California.
Directors provide leadership to represent the interests of the area served and establish policy in accordance with
the laws of what fairs can and should do. The Board of Directors is actively involved throughout the year in a
committee system to oversee the management for the Fair and other fairground events. Directors serve without
compensation; the Association is a state agency and the majority of revenue is self-generated.
