The 2023 OC Fair

The OC chapter of CRFG will once again have an outreach booth at the OC Fair. This is a great experience for all members to participate in. You get to meet eager fair goers and talk to them about all the wonderful fruit we can grow here in Southern California.

Don't think, "I don't know enough or have enough experience to talk to strangers about growing fruit!". We want to staff 2 people per shift so that you can always ask your fellow members questions if you don't know the answer.  This is a great learning experience as well as a great way to meet OC CRFG club members you may not already know.

The booth will have a display of many interesting and unusual fruits donated by Melissa's and supplemented by fruit grown by our members. Last year we had coffee berries, passion fruit, Pinkglow® Pineapples, mangosteen, many varieties of avocado, jackfruit, rabbutan and many others.

The Fair runs from Friday July 14 to Sunday August 13. Our booth is open from 11 am to 9 pm Wednesdays and Thursdays and 11 am to 10 pm Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. There are three shifts each day. Each shift is 3 to 4 hours long.

The morning shift volunteers should expect to arrive 30 minutes early (10:30AM) to set up the booth for the day.

The evening shift volunteers should close up the booth and secure things before leaving.

Sign up by heading over to our Calendy page and finding which time slots work best for you!
