If you can paint it, build it, sew it, grow it, cook it, collect it, then most likely you can enter it into the Sumter County Fair Family Living Exhibit! The exhibit hall is open to ALL youth and adults.
Now is the time to get your projects in motion, or gather the treasures you’ve made over the past year and prepare them for entry. All items are judged and earn a ribbon – blue, red or white. Youth who enter have the opportunity to earn premium money for items that win first place and best of show.
You still have plenty of time before the county fair starts Friday, March 1st, but it’s definitely time to start your projects and make your plans to enter. All items must be checked in on Monday, February 25th from 1:00pm – 6:00pm at the Sumter County Fairgrounds, 7620 SR 471 Bushnell, FL 33513. No early or late items will be accepted.
