Wilson County Fair gearing up for another year of competitive exhibits
Tuesday, August 4, 2015

This Saturday the Wilson County fair will begin taking entries for all non perishable items for their 2015 competitive exhibits. The competitions are open to all Wilson County residents and offer a very wide variety of exhibits. 

Last year over 8,500 entries were received across all platforms of competition, including almost 17,000 total entries. Almost 7,000 Wilson County residents entered one of the many competitions last year and more than $110,000 was paid out to the winners. 

Photography, arts and crafts, baking, stain glass, continue to be very popular contests but there are countless other options to choose from as well. 

There are separate competitions for both adults and youth. Anyone wishing to submit an entry must submit online or between 10:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday for all non perishable entries. The entry must also be marked with a name and age on the bottom or back of each item. Prizes will be awarded based on the decision of the judge(s) and will only be rewarded if the judge(s) feel the item is worth recognition. 

The entries will be placed in divisions based on their age on the opening day of the fair, Aug. 14, and any premiums they should win will be paid between 1 and 3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 23.
