2019 Junior Livestock Exhibitor Information

2019 Auctions are available at the Madera Fair office beginning Wednesday, September 11th during office hours 8am-4:30pm. A list of bump bids will be available thru your leader beginning September 18th. Bump Bid checks are cut on the 5th of every month, beginning in October as payment is received from buyers/bump bidders and available at the Madera Fair office during office hours. Exhibitors are welcome to call the office to verify a check is ready after the 5th.

NEW FOR 2019

In order to participate in a youth livestock program (excluding horse, cavies & dogs) at any California Fair, all exhibitors 9 years of age and older must obtain annual certification in the Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) program or a comparable fair run program approved by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, Fairs and Expositions Branch. Those not certified through a youth education certification program on the issues of animal welfare, food safety and character education are not eligible to participate at a California Fair. Madera Fair has opted to require Mini Member exhibitors younger than 9 to take the YQCA training as well.



Online training costs $12 per exhibitor and may be completed at any time prior to entry deadline.

If you are looking to save a little, there are a number of instructor led trainings that are currently being offered here in the valley which will cost $3 per exhibitor. This training will still require you to register in advance through the website. The Madera Fair will host a training on March 13th at 6:00pm, but any instructor will offer the same course which will fulfill the requirements set forth by the State. A list of trainings being offered is listed below, but since there are new ones being added all of the time, please visit for current trainings. Also, please be aware that people who are offering these instructor led trainings are volunteering their time. If you attend one of these trainings, please arrive early and make sure that your registration has been completed so that the class does not get held up.
