2023 Entry

2023 Coming Soon


Showcasing the successes of Amateur Gardeners like you.

Though our major harvest season is still several weeks away in June, the Bay Area climate makes it possible for backyard gardeners to grow fruits & vegetables in our home gardens almost year-round. The Fair’s Agriculture Department allows amateur gardeners to show their home-grown fruit & vegetables, competing for ribbons & prizes.

And there are contests for things that can be done before the ‘crop’ comes in—decorative wreaths and crafts made from dried plant materials.

Special contests are also available for school classrooms.
