The Industrial Arts Auction (SEA) entries are closed. Once an entry deadline closes you can no longer enter that department. The rest of the departments have entry deadlines either this week or next. By the end of this week on August 4th the following departments will be having their entry deadline: Dept C Clothing, Textiles & Quilts, get your entries in now; Dept D Food Preservation, show off those jams and jellies; Dept F Fine Arts, get them in before Friday; Dept G Photography, develop, frame and enter; Dept H 4-H youth & Dept I open youth deadlines vary according to adult departments; Dept J FFA, presentations, projects get them in; Dept Q Adult Crafts, enter what you have before the end of the week.

If you need help getting entries done online call the Fair office at 846-3626 and ask for help. There is a computer in the office dedicated to the public for entering the Fair.

There are several more departments that have later deadlines. If you have procrastinated look at them so you can still enter the county Fair. The deadline for Dept A Farm & Garden, and Dept E Baked Goods & Confections is August 17th. See what is growing in the garden and decide what to enter before that date. Look up your favorite recipes and decide to enter the Fair. Department B Floriculture has two entry deadlines. One is August 11th for the indoors information booths, the garden club mini-gardens, container plants, and floral design. The second deadline is August 20th for fresh cut flowers. Whichever area you are thinking about...burst into action and sign up now so you do not miss the opportunity to be an exhibitor in the 2017 Butte County Fair.
