Attention fair goers and participants: Entries for the 2018 San Benito County Fair are due this week.
The entry deadline for fair entries is 6 p.m. Friday at the fair office located at Bolado Park. Online entries are due by midnight Thursday as well, according to the fair. The post-marked deadline for mailed entries is Friday, too.
Entries include such categories as crafts, baked goods, livestock for 4-H members, fine arts, junior rodeo, quilts, clothing and textiles, photography and food.
According to the fair website:
The heart and soul of any county fair is the participation of the residents of the county. From agriculture, floriculture, and home arts to photography and fine arts, there is a category for your interest or hobby. A blue ribbon, a shiny trophy – these are what motivate our participants to enter the San Benito County Fair year after year. That motivation allows you to see the best our county has to offer.
Whether your interest is in obtaining the perfect recipe for a rich chocolate cake or stopping to smell the sweet fragrance of a single rose, the Fair is sure to have an exhibit that will tickle your fancy. The fine work done by the residents of the community, especially in quilt making, is a pleasure to see. Don’t miss viewing their exhibits. San Benito County has more than its share of talented artists and the display of fine arts is always a pleasure to see.
The Entry Office is encouraging everyone to use the ONLINE ENTRY PORTAL. The cost is only $2.00 per person, but it gives you complete visibility into your entry right up to delivering your exhibits for judging. You avoid the lines at the office and the system captures all the information we need to create a complete entry.
