Because the Butte County Fair seems a ways off – August 22-25, 2013, it is difficult for many to get their items entered by the mid July deadline with so many other things going on such as vacations, softball and baseball championships and swimming competitions. It is because of this that the deadline for entries and livestock has been extended to August 2, 2013 at 5 p.m. Deadline for the Miss Butte and Miss Teen Butte County has been extended to Friday, July 19, 2013 at 5 p.m. It is the hope of the fair staff and volunteers that the amount of entries submitted will climb drastically in the next three weeks. Entry deadline for plants and flowers will remain the same, August 9, 2013.
