Could the Dixon May Fair Leave Dixon?

It's “reasonable to question why there hasn't been more of an effort to join the Solano County Fair with the Dixon May Fair and relocate both to a more central Solano property," said the Vacaville Reporter editorial.

Could the Dixon May Fair Leave Dixon?

 

The Vacaville Reporter ran an editorial Sunday about the long-term vision of the Solano County Fair as it relates to the county fair grounds in Vallejo, near Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.

The Solano360 Project calls for a revitalization that 149-acre property in Vallejo, but the editorial says it’s “reasonable to question why there hasn't been more of an effort to join the Solano County Fair with the Dixon May Fair and relocate both to a more central Solano property.”

Considering the fact that Dixon is the eastern-most point of Solano County on I-80, the presumption here is that the Dixon May Fair would move west, toward the center of the county.

That would mean it wouldn’t take place in Dixon, and since the Solano County Fair is held at the end of the summer, it possibly wouldn't take place in the month of May, either. But that's not the current plan. 

“Without a private offer or alternative vision, or any expressed desire between the two fairs to join forces, supervisors can only work with what they've got,” continues the editorial. “In this case, the plan that is headed their way seems like a reasonable, long-term proposal that could stimulate the economy for both the city of Vallejo and Solano County as a whole.”

What do you think about the suggestion that the two fairs could merge and happen at a "more central Solano property?"
