I wasn’t sure what to expect when I went to drop off the quilts. My husband has experience with the New Mexico State Fair, which is held in Albuquerque each September, and we were wondering if it would be hard to figure out where to go to drop off my quilts. The directions on the fair’s website when I submitted the quilts just told me to deliver the quilts, ready to hang, between 1pm and 7pm on August 3rd!
The Antelope Valley Fair is a smaller event than a state fair, though. The fairgrounds are nice and we have gone to several company holiday parties hosted in buildings on the site.
There were not many gates open, and upon arrival it was very obvious that we just needed to head to the Van Dam Pavilion to drop off the quilts. This is the building the quilts will be displayed in during the fair, too!
It took less than 5 minutes to get out of the car, walk in the pavilion, and turn over my quilts in exchange for the claim tickets I will use to get my quilts back on August 25th. I am really looking forward to seeing my quilts on display! The AV Fair runs from August 15th through the 24th.
And in other very exciting news, we got some rain today! You might be able to tell that the outdoor photos are all framed by lovely gray clouds. California is in a severe drought, and I was very excited by the nice slow drizzle we experienced in the area all day. It was also a bit of a welcome relief from the hot summer weather. All in all, a lovely day!
