Once a year, Anderson Valley’s biggest metropolis (the sign says “Boonville Pop. 715”), opens the fairground gates to crowds of local folks along with multitudes from out-of-county for the 92nd Annual Mendocino County Fair and Apple Show! From Friday September 15th through Sunday September 17th, the weekend will be jam-packed with continuous family entertainment, sheep dog trials, a classic car show, and apple, cider, and wine tastings... And that's just naming a few.
In addition to quality tasting samples from among the entries to the California Cider Competition and Mendocino Apple Show International Cider Competition, this fair boasts free apple tasting with over 50 different varieties of apples to sample. Stroll through the amazing apple displays that attest to the creativity of the area's apple history. Bring your 'applehead' (Boonting for girlfriend) and get ready for some great cider!
