The Cloverdale Citrus Fair is one of the oldest fairs in California, established in 1892.
Since 1983, the fair has been the home of the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and is a direct beneficiary of any competition profits for operational expenses throughout the year.
The nonprofit Citrus Fair is an important hub of many community and business activities in Northern Sonoma County.
The leftover wines from the competition are used for volunteer staff purposes and in support of wine and enology programs of some California Colleges — notably: Napa Valley College, Santa Rosa Junior College, Fresno State University, Sonoma State University, Chico State University and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
