Cottage Industry Operators’ Day!
Saturday, July 11, 2015
WE LOVE COTTAGE INDUSTRY OPERATORS! Saturday, July 11 is Cottage Industry Operators Day in the California’s Kitchen exhibit at the California State Fair. We are proud to recognize our State’s new breed of small business owners, Cottage
Industry Operators. We want to help you educate consumers about the California Homemade Food Act to empower them with confidence in the legitimacy and safety of the wonderful products available from home kitchens, and to inspire more home cooks to find out
more about becoming a Cottage Industry Operator.
There are two ways to participate:
SIGN UP FOR THE “SNACK DOWN!”
Three participants will face off in a live baking challenge in our Cooking Theatre. Bring your favorite recipe to demonstrate. The winner will be decided by popular crowd vote. Winners will
receive an iconic State Fair Ribbon!
Participants will be provided with ingredients submitted on a shopping list.
Sign up today, space is limited.
PROMOTE YOUR COTTAGE INDUSTRY BUSINESS Two-hour time slots are available in the Do It Yourself Booth for Cottage Industry businesses. Come and set up shop to share information with fair visitors and sell your fabulous goodies.
There is no charge for booth space. Admission and parking is provided. Additional times and dates may be available. The booth is booked on a first-come-first-served basis.
IT’S THE BEST!
We Californians are truly fortunate for the vast agricultural resources and vibrant cultural tapestry which provide to us a bounty of fantastic foods. The California State Fair is proud to promote California Agriculture, and the wellspring of chefs and culinary
enthusiasts that call this state Home.

This year at the California State Fair Ben an Max Homemade Snacks is happy to be partnering with California Kitchen on a number of different things. I am most excited about the first ever "Snack Down". This is a baking competition that will be judged by the audience where cottage food producers will get a chance to prepare and showcase, in a timed challenge, their finest snack food. We will also be taking over the DIY stage for the day. On this stage you will be able to showcase your products, provide samples and market your company to a large audience (total attendance was over 700,000 last year with 70,000 on peak days). Below are the links you will need to participate. We need you for this event to be a success!
