The Central Coast Vinegar Competition provides a venue for vinegars to be professionally judged with the goal to educate consumers regarding the quantity and styles of vinegar produced in the USA.

The California Craft Spirits Competition helps promote the craft distillers that are producing the finest quality artisan spirits inside and outside of California. The competition welcomes craft distillers from all over the United States, offering an additional division for craft spirits produced outside of the state.

Discounted early-bird registration ends Friday, May 21, 2021. The cost to register early is $65 per wine, $65 per vinegar, or $80 per spirit. The cost to register May 22 – Until registration closes Friday, May 28, is $85 per wine, $85 per vinegar, and $90 per spirit.

Chief Judge Tim McDonald will return with an impressive lineup of judges, including industry leaders and international wine journalists. Those names will be announced in the coming weeks.

“It is the goal of the California Mid-State Fair to showcase the incredible quality and diversity of the region’s commercial spirits, vinegars, and wines while expanding the consumers’ knowledge and awareness of these fast-growing industries,” says California Mid-State Fair Interim CEO Colleen Bojorquez.
