Ambitious fair exhibitors in Door and Kewaunee counties can start submitting their projects for this year’s events.
Both counties opened their online portals earlier this spring for exhibitors. While animal exhibitors have had to participate in special meetings along the way, those submitting projects in a number of different categories like clothing, gardening, and art have to submit an application before bringing their items to the fair. In Kewaunee County, junior fair entries need to be submitted by June 1st while open class entrants have until June 15th. In Door County, all junior fair, open class, and school projects have until July 1st to submit their project applications.
Door County 4-H Educator Dawn VandeVoort says they moved up the deadline for the open class and school projects to make sure fair staff are prepared.
VandeVoort says the Door County Fair sees approximately 1400 junior fair projects and 1800 open class exhibits get submitted every year.
The Kewaunee County Fair is July 8th-11th while the Door County Fair is July 28th – August 1st. You can click on the links above for more information on exhibiting at your respective county fairs.
