The Crawford County Fair will take entries on Monday, Sept. 10, in the home economics building at Kirksey Park in Mulberry
Entries do not have to be pre-registered, according to Twila King, superintendent of the Home Economics Division. However, educational booths and creative table setting entries do need to pre-register by Sept. 1 to reserve spaces, she said.
Pre-register these by calling the Crawford County Extension Office at 474-5286.
“We will open our doors to the public for entering exhibits at 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 10 and close at 7 p.m.,” King said. “We hope to see lots of entries, so load up and come to the fair.”
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the home economics building will be closed to the public until judging is finished. Only workers and judges will be allowed in the building at this time.
“We plan to reopen the building at 3 p.m. and will remain open until 9 p.m. on Tuesday,” King said.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday hours will be from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. On Saturday, the building will be open from noon until 6:15 p.m.
“At 6:30 p.m., we will begin to check articles out and will close at 9 p.m.,” King said. “All entries must be picked up between 6:30 and 9 p.m.”
Checks can be picked up on Saturday. The home economics grand champions will have pictures taken at 6:30 p.m.
“If you are between the ages of 5 years old and up, bring your photos, canning, sewing, household handicraft, art, floral arrangements, flowers, field crops, apiary and aquaculture articles and join in the fun,” King said. “A list of everything that can be entered and rules can be found online at www.thecrawfordcountyfair.com or in a Crawford County Fair book, which can be picked up at the extension office and several other places throughout the county.”
