How to Enter Fair Competitions

Showcasing the very best the Central Washington and the Pacific Northwest has to offer in livestock, creative arts, farm products, school projects, and more is a time-honored ritual here at the Central Washington State Fair. We invite you to join in our tradition of competition. There's a category for almost everything and everyone. To learn more about the Fair's departments, hosting competitions, or how to enter, click one of the links below. Each department guidebook includes detailed information regarding the department including rules, classes, and prizes available.

The Central Washington State Fair has upgraded to the use of online entries. ALL livestock exhibitors are required to enter online. General exhibitors have the option to continue entering their exhibits how they have in the past or use the new online system. However, if general exhibits are to be entered online, they must be completed the day before take-in day. There will be paper entry forms available on take-in day for those that didn't enter online ahead of time.

If you need help with entering online, please review the step-by-step document below. You may also contact the Agriculture Manager at (509) 965-3151 or for further assistance.
