    A Quick Guide for First Time Exhibitors
    Q:   Who can enter exhibits?
    A:   Anyone may enter exhibits in the fair. Check each department listing for
         details specific for that department. Some departments are limited due to
         space and staffing.

    Q:   What does it cost to enter?
    A:   We don't charge entry fees.

    Q:   Can I enter exhibits in more than one department?
    A:   An individual item can only be entered in one department and most
         departments limit the number of entries from any one individual. Individuals
         are not, however, limited to the number of departments in which they submit
         entries. Each department requires an individual entry form.

    Q:   How far in advance must I enter an exhibit?
    A:   Deadlines vary for individual departments. Although livestock deadlines are
         in July, most non-livestock exhibit deadlines are one to seven days before the
         start of the Fair. Refer to individual department listings.

    Q:   What types of prizes/awards can I win?
    A:   The types of awards/prizes vary by department. All departments award
         stickers or ribbons . Cash premiums will be awarded to all exhibitors.

    Q:   How are the exhibits judged?
    A:   Exhibits are judged on their appearance, quality, color and all other attributes
         that are normally associated with this type of exhibit. The judging is done by
         experienced judges, who are specialized in that particular field. All judging is
         "Danish." This means they are judged on their own merits for blue, red or
         white awards.

    Q:   Whom do I call if I have questions?
    A:   Call the Fair Office at 360-795-3480.

    Q:   What do I do when I bring my exhibit to the Fairgrounds?
    A:   All exhibits should be taken to the appropriate building; at that point you will
         receive help from the Superintendent or Clerk. Check front of Fair Premium
         Book for times and dates. If you don’t have an exhibitor number you will need
    to get one from the Fair Office.

    Q:   I would like to volunteer at the Fair, who do I contact?
    A:   It takes hundreds of volunteers to put on a Fair every year. Whether you have
         a specific area of interest or just want to help out any way that you can, call
         the Fair office at 360-795-3480, we will be delighted to match you with one
         of the areas that we need help in.

                AIM AND PURPOSE
         OF THE WAHKIAKUM COUNTY FAIR
    The Wahkiakum County Fair is a truly unique event. For 113 years we have been
    proud to showcase the many skills and talents within our picturesque county.
    Our goal is to create an opportunity to allow residents to showcase their beauti-
    ful crafts, nurtured livestock and carefully grown produce. We hope to not only
    entertain but enlighten, as our way of life is a part of history, which we take
    great pride in.

    Wahkiakum offers a range of diverse industries including: Logging, Timber and
    Cottonwood Farms, Commercial Fishing, Tourism, Craft Industry, Small Animal
    Farms and Dairy Farms.

    Each year, the fair is put on to share our history and knowledge while creating
    a festive celebration. It is a place for socializing, fun and education within a
    wholesome family atmosphere.

    The Wahkiakum County Fair is governed by the Board of County Commission-
    ers, a 12 member Board of Directors, Fair Manager and supporting staff, and
    the many dedicated volunteers.

    The Fair is funded by Wahkiakum County, The State of Washington Fair Fund,
    the support of local businesses and donations, along with many fund raising
    events.

    If you would like to volunteer or participate in this year's fair, please contact
    the fair office at 360-795-3480 or email wahkiakumfair@gmail.com

                   Our Fair Theme this year is "Hats Off to the Fair”

              WE WELCOME ALL, and hope those who enter our gates
                    for the 2021 Fair have a wonderful time!

                             Locally grown for 113 years
