Exhibit entries being taken for Meade County Fair
F.Ganje - July 9, 2018

STURGIS, SD – To everything there is a season.  This time of the year, it’s county fair season with kids and adults alike preparing entries in the hopes of winning that elusive purple ribbon. The Meade County Fair & 4-H Appreciation Days is set for July 27-28, 2018 at the Meade County Fairgrounds and Sturgis Brown High School Campus.

Sometimes the fact that county fairs are open to everyone for some friendly competition gets lost in the emphasis on 4-H. In Sturgis, Jenny Voight, 4-H Youth Program Advisor is encouraging Meade County and Sturgis area residents to consider showing off their particular talents.

“We want to show off the talents of Sturgis community members and others at the Fair,” she says. “We want to grow interest in our county fair.  I know there are amazing quilters, photographers, crafters, gardeners and more out there in Meade County.”  She adds, “This is an opportunity for everyone to bring out their items and showcase them at the Fair as well.”

Entries from the public are being accepted now through Friday, July 27, 2018 ending at 8:00a.m. Entry fees are free to kids 12 and under.  Youth ages 13-18 pay a one-time fee of  $2 to enter and adults age 19 and over, pay $5. 

“The Fair Board has a definite goal of growing the fair for the community,” she shares.  “We hope to see Meade County and surrounding communities represented.”

Once judging is complete, indoor exhibits  open to the public from 3:00-5:00pm on Fri., July 27, 2018  and 8:00am – 5:00pm Sat., July 28, 2018.  The exhibits gym is open from 8:00am to 6:00pm both days.   Inside and outdoor vendors are open from 9:00am to 4:00pm.
