MCA Members Take Home 18 CA State Fair Cannabis Awards


MCA would like to congratulate our locally licensed cannabis operators who recently won awards at the 2023 California State Fair. The Fair will be held from July 14 to 30 in Sacramento, and Visit Mendocino, along with members of our local cannabis community, will be on site to educate attendees about our exceptional offerings. Nine farms from Mendocino, all of whom are MCA Members, took home a total of 18 awards, placing in each of the competition categories while dominating the Outdoor field winning 7 of 10 Golds.
