Competitive Exhibits – 2017

Showing off your grandmother’s prized Apple Pie recipe or your farm’s lay-ingest hen is really how fairs came to be. Fairs create a sense of community and bring people together in a friendly spirit of competition. The Blue Ribbon Country Fair is no different.

Entry Forms Are Now Being Accepted
