MEET DAN HARRIS, the talented man who has been creating the famous Pear Fair Posters every year since 1992 (see gallery below). If you are a friend of the Courtland Pear Fair, then you are very familiar with the wonderfully creative posters that advertise the event each year. You start seeing them about six weeks before the fair throughout the Sacramento, West Sacramento, Elk Grove, the Delta and beyond. Each year’s poster is a unique graphic display of the key aspects of the fair, the Delta community, the pear industry and its history – all celebrated at the Courtland Pear Fair.
