Yes. Work created within three (3) years preceding the State Fair is eligible to be entered in the creative activities competition.
Please email email@example.com with your entry number and the changes you would like made.
Due to limited space, those not able to drop entries off during the designated delivery dates will be allowed to drop entries off early from Wednesday, Aug. 2. through Wednesday, Aug. 9 (excluding Saturday and Sunday), from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., to the Admin Too Building (located at 1312 Cosgrove Ave on the fairgrounds). No items will be accepted before Wednesday, Aug. 2.
All items must be registered prior to being delivered- paperwork MUST accompany each exhibit delivered. No heavy items or exhibits requiring special handling will be accepted for early delivery (this includes furniture, oversized items, canoes and boats). If you are not sure your piece will be accepted for early delivery call the competition office PRIOR to delivery.
No. None of the above are allowed as there is no refrigeration provided prior to judging or during the fair. Fruit that is baked into the cake and as a result does not require refrigeration is acceptable.
No, not for general baked goods. However, some special contests do require a recipe. Please make sure to read the rules and regulations for each special contest. A recipe is required for canned goods.
Entries are open to individuals 14 years of age or older as of the first day of the fair. Some of the special contests have different age requirements. Please make sure to read the rules and regulations for each special contest.
The sweepstakes category is an awarded class, so it does not require entry. The judge chooses the sweepstakes winner from all of the first-place items in the classes that relate to the specific sweepstakes.
Because of limited space in the Creative Activities Building, large entries require approval from the creative activities superintendent. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of your entry and exact dimensions to request approval.
Results will be posted on our website on the first day of the fair.
