Horticulture Exhibitors FAQ

10# containers, clear pints, flats and flat green trays are available from the fair office after Aug. 1st.  There will also be some available across from the Horticulture building in the mall area on entry day.
Scarecrows come in through the North side door of the Hort. Building.  Booth entries can be brought in through the small (man) door in front.  All other exhibits come in through the large overhead door in the front of the building.
On Sunday, Entry Day, from 2 pm to 8 pm.
You may add 1 item on entry day for every 1 item you take off.
We ask that booths be entered before 7 pm because it takes longer to set them up. Also, the earlier you come in the better chance you have to get one, some years we do run out of booths.
You can poke a hole through the green trays and pints and tie them on the handles of the 10# containers and flats.  Scarecrow tags need to be pinned to the lowest point of the scarecrow.  On decorated Gourds, veggie creations, and pumpkins, attach as best you can.
No taller than 4′ or wider than 3′.  We have a frame that we pass them through for size.  If yours is too big, we will ask you to make it smaller.  Also remember to enter your scarecrow by class number.
