AIDS Memorial Quilt

AIDS Memorial Quilt

This year, the San Mateo County Fair is proud to display panels from the AIDS Memorial Quilt.  Each panel is an impressive12 feet by 12 feet. This will be one of the first displays of the AIDS quilt in Northern California in over a year.

On October 11, 1987, the Quilt was displayed for the first time on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. It covered a space larger than a football field and included 1,920 panels. Today, the AIDS Memorial Quilt is an epic 54-ton tapestry that includes more than 48,000 panels dedicated to more than 100,000 individuals. It is the premiere symbol of the AIDS pandemic, a living memorial to a generation lost to AIDS and an important HIV prevention education tool. With hundreds of thousands of people contributing their talents to making the memorial panels, the Quilt is considered the largest community arts project in history.
