A Fair for all Youth
The Stanwood-Camano Community Fair is the largest community fair in the State of Washington. Community fairs are special because ALL YOUTH CAN EXHIBIT. You don't have to be in 4-H, FFA, or a special group to show animals or projects at the Stanwood-Camano Community Fair. Everyone shows together and everyone works together in the various departments at our fair. All adults can exhibit in the indoor categories. Because of space, we limit animal departments to youth exhibitors, however, if you show or game a horse you are welcome to participate. Entries are are accepted for all indoor exhibits from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM on Tuesday and 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Wednesday the week of the fair. Animal exhibits are accepted are accepted from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Thursday or 7:00 Am to 9:00 AM each morning, depending on department.
Some special tips for those first time exhibitors:
1. If possible, bring your exhibit during the slower daytime hours.
2. Bring produce, flowers and baked goods Wednesday night so that they will be fresh for the judging. Produce & flowers can be refreshed as needed.
3. Children are limited to seven (7) DIFFERENT craft exhibits.
4. Entries must have been completed since the last Fair.
5. Read the premium list carefully, especially as it relates to the number of fruits, vegetable, or cookies.
6 Be sure all pictures are ready to hang. Test them at home before you bring them to the Fair.
7. If a youth is entering livestock, he or she must have completed and mailed the livestock entry form before July 20 (for sheep, alpaca/llama, swine, fiber goats, dairy goats, pygmy goats, dairy, and beef), before July 25 (for small animals and dogs), and before July 30 (for horse show),
