Fair Honors Farmworkers with New Exhibit

Tres Pinos, CA – The San Benito County Fair is excited to announce this year’s Fair will feature a “Farmworker Heroes Exhibit.”

The exhibit details the life and work of Cesar Chavez, the original farmworker hero. The Cesar Chavez Foundation says, “he created a movement to improve the quality of life for Latinos and working people.”

Agriculture is at the heart of San Benito County and the Fair. And, the people who work hard every day planting and harvesting our crops are the heart of agriculture. This special exhibit will honor the work of Cesar Chavez and celebrate farmworkers. They play an essential role in keeping our community fed.

The exhibit will also feature photographs of local farmworkers.

Please call Katie at 949-257-9089 to schedule an interview about this important new exhibit.

Also, the media is invited to photograph the exhibit before the Fair, Thursday September 28th from 11:00am – 2:00pm

The “Farmworker Heroes Exhibit” will be on display at the Fair daily, September 29 – October 1st.
