How to Enter in the Open Class Departments
*Open class departments are open to anyone (all ages)!

You have two options:
1.  Pre-Registration:
          a.  Pre-registration is encouraged in open class departments – Home Economics, Fine Art, Photography, Horticulture and Floriculture, but not required. To register, click on the link above and create a FairEntry Account. After you have pre-registered, you can still add or delete items when you arrive at the fair on entry day.
          b.  When you arrive with your exhibits on your department’s entry day, go directly to the Open Class Beavon barn and your entry tags will be waiting for you.
          c.  Along with your item(s), please bring a self-addressed, stamped envelope with you if you would like to have your Premium check mailed to you.  If you do not bring an envelope, premium monies will be considered a donation to the fair. Check the individual department sections for the date and times of entry for your particular category.

2.  Day of Entry Registration:
          a.  Be sure to check with each individual department for dates and rules pertaining specifically to that area of entry. If possible, please fill out the Open Class Entry Form at home and bring it with you.
          b.  Come to the Open Class Beavon building on the day of entry and you will find entry information and receive your exhibitor tags (there is no entry fee).  You will be given specific instructions then. Please bring address labels to speed up completion of 3-part entry tags. 
          c.  All exhibits must remain at the fairgrounds until Sunday morning.  Pick up time is 8 am-10 am, and your entry stub will be required for pick up.  If not picked up on Sunday, item(s) will be forfeited.
