Did you know that any Florence County resident over the age of 5 can enter "traditional" fair book exhibits at the Florence County Fair? In fact, most people have items ready to enter and do not even realize it.

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:

Question:  What are exhibits?  
Answer:  Exhibits are items that have been created by the person entering them at the fair.

Question:  What is the cost to enter items?  
Answer:  There is no charge to enter exhibits in the fair if you pre-register (fill out your form ahead of time) by Friday, August 11. After August 11, there is a flat $5.00 charge per exhibitor.

Question:  What can I enter?  
  Answer:  Exhibits range from homemade pies and cookies, handcrafted benches and shelves, quilts and handmade knitting and crocheting, photographs, animals, vegetables, flowers and much more.

Question:  Who do I compete against?  
Answer:  Exhibitors are entered into Open Class (ages 18 and up) or Youth Class (ages 5-17). The Youth Class is divided into four separate age groups.

Question:  Where can I find out more specifics on what can be entered?  
Answer:  All of the items that can be entered in the fair are listed in the Florence County Fair Book.   This book gets published with the Florence Mining News in late July.  The information is also available online on this page.


Questions:  When do I have to bring my items to the fair?
Answer:  All non-livestock exhibits must be brought to the fairgrounds on Wednesday, August 23. 
  Each item will be given an entry tag to prepare it for judging the following day. Animals must 
  be brought to the fair on Friday, August 25 by 11 a.m.

Question:  Why should I enter items into the fair? 
Answer:  Entering your items into the fair gives you the chance to display your hard work and talents.  Exhibits winning ribbons also receive a premium amount. A premium is a monetary prize that is associated with the ribbon won.

Question:  Do you still have more questions?  
Answer:  Contact Jessica at 906-282-9153 or at florencecountyfair@hotmail.com.
