Exhibitors Guide

We encourage everyone to enter a project or creation into one of the many Fair exhibits that are offered each year.

To ensure fair and equitable competition and to provide state-wide consistency, the California Department of Food & Agriculture’s Division of Fairs & Expositions creates the State Rules for California Fairs, containing all the rules and definitions you’ll need to know if you’ve never entered a competition in the Fair. The link below opens the 2014 State rule book.
