Time to enter the county fair

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,” said the El Dorado County 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 its 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 — and since we moved into a larger building, there is no longer a photography entry limitation — everyone can enter as many photos as they’d like.

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

The fair has added new divisions in the baking and confections category including ugliest cake decorating and men’s only baking.

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?
