California State Fair Home Wine and Label Competition Entry Information
Polish off your best bottles and print your labels! The handbook for the California State Fair home wine and label entries is now available on-line here. The fair is accepting entries starting March 17 through April 17. You do the paperwork on-line and we’ll accept members’ bottle and label deliveries at the April 15 SHW meeting.
Volunteer to Work the State Fair Competition and Home Wine Booth
After submitting your entries, please put on your volunteer hat. This year, the State Fair invited SHW to help with the May 16 home wine competition event , June 20 awards ceremony, and the fair’s home wine booth. The fair runs July 10-26.
Top winning entries will be on display at the State Fair’s home wine booth. So, if you enter and score big and you work the booth, you’ll get to kind of mention how the names match on the big win and your name badge – how cool is that?
Contact Henry Wilkinson at email@example.com if you’re interested volunteering to work the state fair home wine competition.
Contact Fred Millar at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in working a shift at the fair’s home wine booth. Volunteering for a booth shift gets you free fair entry and free parking.
