Hall of Fame Award
The Amador County Fair Board of Directors is proud to announce the induction of Jim Guidi into the Amador County Fair Hall of Fame.
Jim and his entire family have been a fixture on the fairgrounds since the early 1970s tirelessly broadcasting from the on-grounds KVGC 1340 AM and 96.5 FM Hometown Radio Stage each day of the Fair. Jim also provides Master of Ceremony duties to the Miss Amador County Scholarship Pageant and blow-by-blow commentary at the Annual Destruction Derby. Jim is a founding member of the Amador County Fair Foundation.
For some real Fun Fair Facts tune into KVGC 96.5 FM or 1340 AM, listen for the guitar intro and learn about the history and people who made the Amador County Fair what it is today. From diaper derbies survivor corn dog eating contests, Jim has been our go to guy! And that’s a Fact.
With a passion for all things Amador County, Jim and family support local kids, charities, businesses and causes earning him awards from nearly every community group in Amador County. Always serving community, Jim and KVGC is the voice of information during emergencies of any kind. When you come to the Fair be sure to say hi to Jim and his entire family and thank them for their support of the many events happening in the Motherlode.
The Hall of Fame Award recognizes and honors those individuals or groups who have provided a body of work demonstrated over time that benefits and supports the Amador County Fair. The Hall of Fame Award is given at the discretion of the Amador County Fair Board of Directors
WFA Blue Ribbon Award
The Amador County Fair Board of Directors is proud to announce American Legion Post 108 Ambulance Service as a recipient of the prestigious Western Fairs Association (WFA) Blue Ribbon Award.
American Legion Post 108 Ambulance Service has donated EMT and Ambulance Services for Amador County Fair goers and participants for many decades. Their service to the Amador County Fair and related youth activities includes donated ambulance services for events including the annual Challenge of Champions High School Rodeo and others.
Always professional, the American Legion Post 108 Ambulance Service EMTs are on the grounds ahead of the four-day run of the Fair, watching over the people on the grounds who are working on their booths, bringing in their livestock and more. By far, the biggest medical issue during the Fair is blisters and heat related concerns. It’s comforting to know that when needed we can always rely on our American Legion Post 108 Ambulance Service to help.
The WFA Blue Ribbon Award recognizes and honors those individuals or groups who have provided outstanding support to the fair and/or the fair industry, including volunteers, groups, sponsors and educators.
