The following guidelines are provided by the office of the State Fire Marshall for use in connection with fire safety decoration activities at the fair:

  • Paper or cloth suspended or shown in any manner for use in decorations or other purpose shall be specially treated materials to render them flame-resistant.  Commercial flame retardants are suggested.  Flame-resistant treated crepe paper may be obtained through reputable paper dealers, although it is not recommended.
  • Decorative materials such as cotton batting, straw, dry vines, leaves, trees, artificial flowers or shrubbery and foam plastic materials shall not be used for decorative purposes in a building in such a quantity as to constitute a fire hazard.  Per 1301:7-703(G)F-305.1OFC


Those wanting to camp at the fair must pick up registration forms at the Senior Fair office. The completed application must be returned to the Senior Fair office by August 15th.  Last year’s campers will receive preference. If you are a first time camper, please do not include payment with your application; payment will be requested when you are informed as to whether you have been assigned a camping spot.

Please, if you have families that are now done showing in 4-H, encourage them to let their space become available for those who are current exhibitors and need to stay in the camping area.


Thursday and Friday prior to fair opening, all traffic will be one way!!!! Traffic must enter Vanover Street gate and exit the back gate. Everyone (including Junior Fair Board) must park in the track infield or back parking lot.  Do not park on grounds where tents, booths and trailers are moving in.  Please unload large items at the Junior Fair building, then go park.

We ask that owners of trailers and large trucks DO NOT PARK VEHICLES JUST OUTSIDE THE WEST GATE during the fair.  Please park in the designated areas.  NO EXHIBITOR PARKING AROUND 4-H HORSE BARNS. ONLY AUTHORIZED VEHICLES PERMITTED IN THAT AREA. The parking lot behind the Coliseum is for handicap parking only
