Welcome to the 2017 Benton County Fair & Rodeo Exhibitor Book County Fairs are where people bring the fruits of their labors to show and share (and maybe even brag a bit). So pick your pretties petunia, 'frame' your fabulous photographs*, can those pickles using granny's recipe, finish stiching that quilt, brush up your birds and shampoo your sheep! Intake days and times are listed by department. You can even win money! First, Second and Third place winners earn $3, $2 or $1 in Open Class Static and much more in Open Class Livestock.
*(photographs can be matted but not framed)
There are basically three types of entries:1. Open Class Livestock - Boer Goats, Dairy Goats, Poultry, Rabbits & Cavies and Sheep. This year there is NO Pony Department. Completed and Paid Open Class Livestock Forms are REQUIRED for participation. Open Class Livestock ENTRY DEADLINE is July 21, 2017.
2. Open Class Static - Fiber Arts, Fine Arts, Floral, Food, Hobbies & Crafts, Land Products, and Photography
3. 4H - all 4H entries are managed by the 4-H Extension Office
Please direct questions directly to the Superintendent listed for the Department in which you want to enter.
