Pierce County Fairbooks now available

This year’s Pierce County Fair is August 8th – 11th. Entry day for all non-animal exhibits is Wednesday the 7th with judging beginning on Thursday the 8th. So whether you bake, sew, build, grow or train, entering an exhibit at a county fair is an exciting process.

 In 2012, over $15,000 was awarded in cash premiums to Pierce County youth and adults who entered their masterpiece for display. There are 16 different open class departments with classes ranging from Little Dairyman to Charolais bull calves, Little Shepherd to Pekin ducks, alfalfa to roses, oil painting to ceramics, nature photography to cakes, breads to quilts and don’t forget the homemade wines. To enter your favorite exhibit in the Pierce County’s Open Class competition, fill out the enter blank found in the Pierce County Fairbook on page 9 and submit your entry by 4:30 p.m. to the Fair Office in the Seyforth Building on the fairgrounds in Ellsworth or postmarked by the June 20th deadline.

As in previous years, St. Croix, Dunn and Pepin County residents are eligible to exhibit in the Open Class Division at the 2013 Pierce County Fair. If any resident from our neighboring counties have questions, please feel free to contact the Fair Office at 715-273-6874 or Fair Coordinator, Ann Webb at awebb@co.pierce.wi.us.
