Placer County Fair: Blue Ribbons In Your Future?




preserves.jpg

ROSEVILLE, CA.-- Now is the time to fulfill the promises made to yourself at last year's Placer County Fair.  This year you will enter the quilt you finally finished, the blackberry jam your family loves, or one of your famous flower arrangements and that fabulous photo of your grandkids in the pumpkin patch. Whatever your talents are, entering your projects in the exhibits competition at the Fair is easier than ever with the Fair's on-line entry system.  Themed "Summer Beach Party" this year's Fair will be held June 19-22.

Don't miss the California State Parks photography division which celebrates our State Parks' 150th anniversary.  The Fair is also holding a Paparazzi Contest which does not require pre-entry - just register the day you attend the Fair and submit your five best shots before 5:00 pm for judging.

Most entry forms are due May 23, with exceptions for floriculture. Submitting entry forms in advance allows building superintendents to plan for the exhibit space required. Most actual exhibits are not due until just prior to the Fair. A complete schedule of deadlines and judging is provided in the Handbook. The office will be open from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday to assist with online entries if needed.

The Exhibitor Handbook is available online at PlacerCountyFair.org and staff will assist in printing sections of interest at the Fair office for anyone without access to a computer.

For more information about the Fair or assistance in entering the Fair competition, please visit www.PlacerCountyFair.org or call (916) 786-2023.
