Exhibit Rules, Classifications, Online Premium Book Access

Sanders County Fair uses a system of Categories in order to insure that exhibits are judged in comparison to entries within similar age groups or skill levels.  It is very important that exhibitors clearly indicate the appropriate category on their entry forms by following the descriptions within each Department in the Fair Premium Book and as described below. Age is determined as of the final day of paper entry registration for each fair year.  For the 2016 Fair this date is August 17, 2016.

Online entries are now closed!
