2023 Exhibit Release:
Monday, July 3, 11:00 am-4:00 pm

We are excited to announce that there is still no entry fee for static exhibits. We hope to continue to encourage broad participation by keeping it free to enter as many exhibits as you like for judging. This does mean that we have eliminated premiums for top placements, however special prizes and ribbons will still be awarded.


Due to low participation, we are not offering animal judging this year. Please let us know if you want us to bring it back and who might be able to help make it happen, as we always want to include as wide a representation possible of our county's riches!
