Do you have a yummy cookie recipe that you’d like to share? Or fantastic vegetables to boast about? Or have your children made some darling crafts throughout the year that you’re proud of?
Then enter them into the Fair! If you’ve done it before, then you know the drill. But if you’re new to the county or have ever walked through the Homemaking building and thought “how do I enter my fabulous collection of rocks?”,here’s all the information you need.
It’s simple. Just bring your exhibits to the Clarke County Ruritan Fairgrounds during the specified time, wait in line to get your exhibitor #, then proceed to the appropriate department to submit your exhibit.
