Come and fulfill your “Country Dreams” at the El Dorado County Fair June 13-16.

“This year, we have many new and revised categories from which to choose, guaranteeing a competition everyone will want to enter,” says the fair’s CEO Jody Gray. “The fair is a great place to show off that great photo you took of a beautiful sunset, cute puppy or just about anything your camera or iPhone can capture. Try creating a table setting with items that you can get at a thrift shop or out of your kitchen. There are so many things that you can enter and show off at the fair. It’s fun and addicting—there is nothing like the anticipation of opening of the Fair to see if you have that ribbon attached to your entry.”

“The fair is constantly improving their division choices to provide exhibitors with up-to-date and new classes in the Entry Guide. For example, new in 2013, not all professional photography needs to be framed. There will be classes for both framed and non-framed work for pros — since we moved into a larger building, there is no longer a photography entry limitation,” Gray said.

In addition, the computer section has been completely revised to include many graphic design classes, blogs, WordPress, mobile aps, JavaScript programming and more.

“We’ve added new divisions in the baking and confections category including Ugliest Cake Decorating and Men’s Only Baking,” Gray said.

In the preserved foods category, there is a new division called Sassy Sauce, where exhibitors can enter their sassiest and most prized recipes with “Sassy” in the title. The Wine Label competition was revised to include classical, label series, whimsical, artistic and painted/etched bottle classes. Never entered your work in a competition before? The El Dorado County Fair is a great place to start. Increase your confidence, showcase your skills and wow the judges. Whatever your passion, there is a way to enter it into the fair. Enter in one of the divisions listed above or check out the entry guide the fair’s Website at EldoradoCountyFair.org for more options.
