Entry Check In: Tuesday, August 16th, 2022

1. All entrants are encouraged to contact the Superintendent by July 31st to arrange cage space in advance.

2. All poultry must be checked by the Fair Veterinarian before being exhibited. Do NOT unload animal from personal cage until vet has checked your animal.

3. All poultry must be free of lice, mites, and other parasites/diseases before they will be accepted as entries. Due to recent threats of Avian Flu and other diseases, do not bring any bird that shows signs of sneezing, coughing, wheezing, eye or nasal discharge, open-mouthed breathing, or lethargy to the Fair. If you have had any recent illnesses or deaths in your flock, please do not bring any birds to the Fair. This will help reduce the spread of potentially fatal diseases.
