Welcome to Open Class at the Utah County Fair. We invite Open Class entries from anyone who is a resident of Utah County, but not a 4-H exhibitor.

 

ENTRIES

All items to be exhibited must be pre-registered online or at the fair at the date of entry. Please note that pre-registering will save you time when you bring your exhibit to the fair. Please bring all entries to the Tennis Building at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds, 475 S Main St., Spanish Fork, UT.

 

Check-In: Monday, August 15, 8:00 am – 6:00 pm

If you are unable to pick up your exhibits, there will be a $25 handling fee to transport each item back to the Utah County Building.

 

Animals or articles can be entered only by the owner or producers, and any attempt to perpetrate a fraud by misrepresentation will bar the specimen from the competition. Any item or animal eligible for entry should be entered in its appropriate class. Entries may be made by Utah County residents only. Management reserves the right to reject any article offered for exhibit simply as a means of advertising, or that is deemed unsuitable for family viewing.

 

PLACING EXHIBITS

Exhibitors must attend to the delivery, in person or by agent, of articles or animals for exhibition to the Utah County Fairgrounds, Tennis Building, for check-in. All exhibits, when assigned space, become subject to the control of the Open Class Supervisor and shall remain in place until August 22, 2014, unless by action of the Utah County Fair Management. Exception shall be made for small animals (See Small Animals division for times and exhibit space.)

 

JUDGES

Judges will be selected with care to ensure fairness and professionalism. There will be attendance by exhibitors or the public during the judging of the exhibits at the fair. No judges will be allowed to exhibit in the department in which they act as judge, or in which they may be directly or indirectly interested in the result as owner, agent or otherwise. Judges must avoid contact with exhibitors and will refuse to hear the merits or demerits of any exhibit.

 

EXHIBIT REQUIREMENTS

All entries must remain at the fair until Monday, August 22, 2014. Check-out is between 8:00 am – 1:00 pm only. Removal of exhibits before that time will forfeit awards. Exception will be for small animals. Please see the Small Animals division for details.

Utah County Fair management reserves the right to remove any exhibit that may be falsely entered or deemed unsuitable or objectionable, without assigning reason therefore. Utah County Fair management, through its officers and with the aid of security personnel, will use diligence to care for all property placed under its charge.

GENERAL RULES

Entrants are limited to residents of Utah County. Fair personnel will exercise reasonable safety and handling precautions. However, the Utah County Fair will assume no liability for any loss.

 

RULES & GUIDELINES

• Flower growers can exhibit in each division.

• Only one entry per variety may be made from the same garden.

   (Enter silks in Creative Arts.)

• Each exhibitor must bring own container plainly marked

   on the underside. The fair is not responsible for breakage or loss.

• Flowers must be labeled correctly. Supervisors will help if needed.

• It is not considered respectful to use the American flag in

   flower arrangements.

• Exhibits must remain until Monday, August 22nd.

 

Utah County Fair reserves the right to reject any entry deemed not suitable for family viewing.

 

PREPARATION AND CARE OF CUT FLOWERS

Gather flowers after 4:00 pm the previous night, or before sunrise. Cut with long stems, generally just before they come into full bloom. Some flowers, such as the following are exceptions: Gladiolus, when first bud opens; Roses, when buds are soft (do not remove leaves); Dahlias, when blooms are fully open; Poppies, the night before opening.

 

• On succulent stems, use a sharp knife; brittle stems

   such as Chrysanthemums are best broken.

• For best results, flowers should be placed in water up to the

   flower’s head immediately after cutting, then store for several

   hours in a dark, draft-free place at a temperature around 40-50°F.

• When arranging flowers, do not remove buds and leaves,

   except those leaves that would be submerged in water.

• Groom entries carefully.

• Be sure the count is accurate and the correct amount

   required by the rules.

• Allow ample space in container so each flower head shows.

   Small flowers should be placed in small containers;

REGISTRATION

You can pre-register your items ahead of time, see the pre-registration button above, or register in person at the Utah County Fairgrounds, Tennis Building, on the date of entry. There is no fee to enter items in the fair. Please note that pre-registering will save you time when you bring your exhibit to the fair.

 

GENERAL RULES

Entrants are limited to residents of Utah County. Fair personnel will exercise reasonable safety and handling precautions. However, the Utah County Fair will assume no liability for any loss.

 

RULES & GUIDELINES

Awards will be made in each fruit and vegetable category as determined by the judges. There are many different varieties of fruits and vegetables. Enter each kind under the appropriate division. For instance, crookneck squash will be judged against other crookneck squash and not against zucchini squash; blue potatoes will be judged against other blue potatoes and not against yellow potatoes. Know what each item is and enter it correctly. The judges need to know what each item is. For instance, if you don’t enter a sugar snap pea as such, it will be judged with the regular peas.

 

PREPARING FRUITS FOR EXHIBITION

All fruits should be clean and free from spray residue and polished. Applies should be picked with stems on. Peaches should have the fuzz removed. Grapes may be trimmed and defective grapes removed.

 

Fruits and vegetables should be large enough to meet market requirements or standards and should be at maturity when it is best to eat them rather than exceptionally large; however, a size larger than ordinary for most things, with good quality, could be a winning entry. Judges will take into account late season fruits and vegetables such as grapes, Jerusalem artichokes, apples, pumpkins, etc, which will be immature rather than ripe.

 

All specimens must be the same maturity, color, size and shape, and all specimens must be of the same variety unless the exhibit description specifically states otherwise. This means multiple entries need to look as alike as possible.

 

Specimens should be free from blemishes such as bruises, cuts, wind or insect damage, or from any other cause.

 

Root crops should be free from soil and fibrous roots with tops removed unless otherwise stated. Cole crops should be neatly trimmed and outer leaves removed.

 

The fair reserves the right to clip stems, etc, for display.

JUDGING

Prizes will be awarded based on judge’s evaluation of the print’s total presentation, print and mounting quality, photographic technique, impact, originality, composition and appeal.

All decisions of the judges will be final.

At the discretion of the supervisor, prints not meeting the category description specified by the photographer may be moved to another appropriate category.
