Grape, Raisin and Nut Expo A Big Success

More than 600 in Attendance in Fresno

More than 600 growers and PCAs gathered at the Fresno Fairgrounds to hear from UC Scientists, Commodity Boards, UC Cooperative Extension, USDA Researchers, Irrigation Experts, and Ag Safety Experts.

“The show exceeded our expectations, with a record crowd,” said Dan Malcolm, editor of American Vineyard magazine and co-host of the event. “We were happy that so many attended so that we could thank them for all they do in providing so much for all of us.”

The one-day event had concurrent seminars for almond and walnut growers, and grape growers.

The seminar speakers were captivating and provided great information for growers and PCAs to gain up to three hours of continuing education credit.

“We provide a free breakfast featuring eggs and sausage breakfast burritos, and free lunch featuring a barbeque tri-tip feast and broccoli salad,” said Patrick Cavanaugh, editor of Pacific Nut Producer and co-host of the show. “All attendees seem very happy with the event.”
