2021 Fair Information

Some of this information has not be update to the 2021 Fair Information - Please check back for updates.  Thanks for understanding.

  • Online Entries Using Fairwire
    All Entries will be made online.
    Here are the detailed step-by-step instructions with screenshots to walk you through the process of online entries.  Entries are easy to make so please do not let the lengthy in- structions scare you. The screenshots take up a lot of the pages. We recommend printing these instructions for use during registration. (This site will be open to take entries until July 21 at 11:59 pm. No entries will be taken after this date)
  • Requesting Stalls/Pens: You will be able to request your stalls/pens/cages while you are in Fairwire. Due to limited space, not every individual exhibitor will be able to have a stall/pen/cage for just his/her animals. Families will be put together. So, with this in mind, only request the number of stalls/pens/cages that you will actually need for the whole family. When you enter an animal in a division which requires a stall/pen/cage (beef, bucket calf, dairy cattle, dairy goat, meat goat, sheep, swine, rabbits, and poultry) please submit an entry in the ‘ XX Animals Number of Stalls/Pens/Cages Needed’ division. In the class field, select which animal type of stall/pen/cage you are requesting. Fill in number of head and number of stalls/pens/cages needed. Note: Please submit one ‘XX Animals Stalls/Pens/Cages Needed’ item per division. If you have entries in the Swine division, create in the ‘Swine Pens Needed’ Division to request pens for swine. If you also have entries in the Sheep division, submit another entry in the ‘Sheep Pens Needed’ division to request pens for sheep.  This helps with fair set-up to determine the number of stalls, pens and cages needed. This is due July 21.
