Entries & Exhibits

Beginning April 15th, you may begin entering your competitive exhibits online or by mail. A copy of the Junior and Open Class Exhibitor’s guide and Premium book is on the website. Be sure to read them carefully as they contain much information regarding rules and regulations. We invite everyone to enter! There is sure to be an area you can find that interests you. Competitive exhibits are the foundation of county and state fairs. People gathered to show the fruits of their labor, whether it was garden produce, farm animals, creative art, woodworking, sewing, photography, or baked goods. This tradition continues, with the addition of flowers & houseplants, antiques, home-brewed ale, and wine, among other items. Check it out!

For a nominal fee you can enter, and when you deliver your goods to the fairgrounds you will receive a wristband that will give you free admission to the fair for the entire week. That is a $20.00 value! You are not limited to one exhibit. You can enter many items, in multiple departments for your chance to win a blue ribbon, and a small monetary prize, along with bragging rights!

NOTE! To enter on-line, you must first go to the Exhibitor Guide & Premium Book tab below. Locate the department (s) you wish to enter, read the fine print, then click on the "Click here for Online Entry" at the beginning of that department.

Contact the entry department if you have any questions at (715)-723-2861, Ext. 103
