ONLINE ENTRIES FOR OPEN CLASS
Use the Exhibit Guide to find your department of choice. Once you have chosen a department, you’ll want to take a close look at each division within that department. Divisions are categories within your department that are broken up into even smaller categories, listed as class numbers. If you’re ready to proceed with a department, division and class number, move on over to our Online Entry System with this information. There, you will create a User Name and Password, which gives you access to register your items in The Fair. Exhibitors under 18 years of age will need Parent or Guardian’s permission.
Don’t forget to print your receipt when you’ve completed registration! This is your proof of registration by the deadline! Your receipt confirms exhibits and livestock entered. In cases of discrepancies, if you do not have a receipt as proof of registration, no changes will be made to existing exhibitor accounts.
