Little River County Fair Exhibits

Make sure to win a blue ribbon by entering your handmade items you crafted this year at the Little River County Fair.

Ashdown, Ark. –

Entries for the Little River County Fair in the home economics department will be accepted on Monday, August 8th from 3-6 PM and Tuesday, August 9th from 9-10 AM.  Winners will receive premiums of $3 for first place, $2 for second place, and $1 for third place.  Judging will take place Tuesday afternoon.  After judging, all of the items will be on display daily throughout the fair August 9-13th.  Exhibitors can pick up their items after judging on Monday, August 15th from 4-6 PM. 

Consider entering your perfectly canned peaches or green beans. Pick your best looking strawberry jam to enter in the fair.  You can also enter handmade breads or sweets, but remember to bake those soon a day or two before entering it in the fair. One of the new categories this year includes cake pops! These are fun for adults and youth to make so be sure to bring those to enter.

Remember to enter that beautiful baby gown you made as well.  Don’t forget to enter that special quilt you pieced together or your tied quilt that everyone loves.  Make sure your artwork and photographs are wired for hanging and bring them out to the fair. You have taken many quality photos that will definitely win a prize!  Make a beautiful fresh flower arrangement with all of your summer flowers. 

Get your children and grandchildren together to help prepare your fair items.  You can make priceless memories this summer before school starts back mid-August.  Pick up a fair catalog at the Extension Office so you can prepare your fair items for entering soon.
