Calling All Crafters, Artisans, & Hobbyists
Show of your skills! Adult exhibits are the driving force behind the Life and Arts competitive exhibits. Exhibiting is an opportunity for adult artists, craftspeople, and cooks to display their hobbies and talents at the fair. There are 12 departments which contain divisions and classes for adult exhibitors, each with its own handbook. These handbooks contain all the information needed for exhibiting and are located in PDF format at the bottom of this page.
2023 Forms and Handbooks Now Available
Note: There are separate registration forms for those wishing to enter in the Garden and Flower departments. These can be found on the Adult Exhibiting page at the end of the respective handbooks.
ONLINE ENTRY AVAILABLE MAY 1, 2023
Don't forget there are also exhibiting opportunities in our Special Events division. The Special Events contests allow exhibitors the opportunity to have their creations judged live during the fair. There are even On-the-Spot competitions where exhibitors build their own crafts on site during the fair in front of an audience of fair patrons.
