Brown County Fair

July 3, 2015 - Brown County Fair Entries Now Being Accepted Homebrewed Beer Added to the Competition

Have you ever wondered how an item you made, baked, photographed or created would stack up against the same item made, baked, photographed or created by another individual?  The Brown County Fair offers you the opportunity to find out by entering your baked goods, photographs, woodworking, knitting, etc. in the Fair.

The Brown County Fair offers adults and senior citizens (age 62 and over) a chance to compete with others in the areas of Plant & Soil Science, Flowers, Knitting & Crocheting, Baking & Food Preservation, Photography, to name a few.  Many more opportunities can be found on our website under the Exhibitor Handbook tab.  The entry deadline is July 15th

Last year we added a division for homemade wines.  This year we have added a division for homebrewed beer under the Natural Science Department.  Just like last year, we will be offering fairgoers (21 and older) an opportunity to taste the wines and beer that are being judged.  The wine and beer judging will take place on Wednesday night, August 19th.   Tasting will follow judging.  Entrants in the beer and wine competition will receive a pass for entry to the Fair on Wednesday so they can be present for judging.

Open and senior exhibitors are reminded that they may bring their items on Monday, Aug. 17 from 6-8 p.m. and on Tuesday, Aug. 18, from 8:30-10 a.m. All open and senior entries must be received by 10 a.m. on Aug. 18.  This includes all wine and beer entries.   Judging will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. unless noted otherwise.

To enter an item in the Fair visit the website at, click on exhibitor handbook and then “on line entries.” Cost to enter as many items as you wish is a flat rate of $4.
