Exhibitors Entry Guide Available for Colusa County Fair

Whether you hand-stitch quilts, grow plump produce for juicy jams, or use digital photography to capture your world, there will be a category of competition to showcase your talents in the Colusa County Fair. The Exhibitor Handbook is now available online for the annual County Fair to be held in Colusa, June 5-8. Residents of Colusa, Butte, Glenn, Lake, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties are eligible to enter most competitions.

“Fair exhibits and competition for a blue ribbon is a showcase of the community’s talents,” explains Susan Clark, CEO. “From the hundreds of categories available, anyone can find a place to show off their projects.”

Artists and photographers entering works in this year’s exhibition will have the opportunity to sell their pieces. Exhibitors must name their own price on their entry form. The Colusa County Fair will collect sales tax and receive a 15% commission on all pieces sold.

Some unique categories to consider are table settings and floral arrangements based on song titles and artisans can enter paintings drawings and sculpture as an interpretation from the book “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Ernest Hemingway, the featured book by the Virginia Read Memorial.

Watch for categories relating to the 2014 theme “Country Roots & Cowboy Boots”. Livestock exhibitors are encouraged to decorate their stalls and campsites with the theme. The theme logo was designed by Debbie Perdue of Williams.

Most entry forms are due May 23, with exceptions for floriculture, garden produce, photography and feature booths, and are detailed on page 9. Submitting entry forms in advance allows building superintendents to plan for the exhibit space required. Most actual exhibits are not due until just prior to the Fair. A complete schedule of deadlines and judging is provided in the Handbook. The entry office will be open from 8:00 am and Noon and 1-5:00 pm, Monday through Friday to assist with online entries if needed. Exhibits will not be released until Tuesday, June 10, this year.

The Exhibitor Handbook is available online at www.ColusaCountyFair.com and staff will assist in printing sections of interest at the Fair office for anyone without access to a computer.

For more information about the Fair or assistance in entering the Fair competition, please visit www.ColusaCountyFair.com or call 530 458-2641.
