Exhibitor Handbook

LET'S GET...Exhibiting!

Madera District Fair is a "Family Reunion" every September and your exhibit entries are part of the FAMILY TRADITION. So bring cupcakes, enter your painting, show-off your garden treasures through floriculture or grab Grandma's jelly recipe and give it a go! Enter your Livestock, the driving reason for Madera District Fair's inception. There are so many competitions to choose from in the 2019 Handbook, you're just going to have to see for yourself...Make sure to visit our limited edition 2019 FEATURED CONTESTS!

WHAT'S NEW about the dates?!

In order to give a few more options as well as more time for folks to get their entries in, we have moved the ENTRY CLOSING DATE(S) back. AND we will allow the actual exhibit hall items to be brought in WITH your entry form. Save a trip! We have also moved the RECEIVING DATE(S) back, with two days to pick from.
Here's a list of the new things:
  • TWO entry closing dates August 19th and 20th
