An award winning Fair

The Capital Fair receives World’s Finest Shows’ 2015 Fair of the Year Award.
World’s Finest Shows has a selection committee consisting of a minimum of 4 members who visit all of the show locations during their events. The committee reviews attendance numbers as well as other components which the fair or festival has undertaken to attract visitors. The selection process is an open discussion. The committee reviews factors other than increased revenue with respect to show improvement. The selection process is not a hard and fast rule of checklists. It’s based on revenue, overall feel, appearance and feedback from the public. The final decision is always difficult to make because of the high level of quality of shows each year.
