A Look Into the Future

The information included in the concept map is based on input received from Salinas Valley Fair Directors, staff, business partners, regional officials and members of the community. The most recent update was unveiled in January 2017 at the Salinas Valley Fair Board of Directors Annual Meeting, July 2017 Salinas Valley Fair Heritage Annual Meeting as well as at King City community organizations.
