From home grown and home harvested to home cooked and home hobbies and crafts, this is your time to shine. Enter your creation(s) in Public Competitions (formally known as Open Class) at the Arapahoe County Fair. Young or seasoned, local or from afar, anyone can enter.

Competitions are open to all who seek to bring their creations for judging to secure coveted Blue Ribbon winning entry – and bragging rights, of course. Divisions include: 18 and under and 19 and older.

From classic contest divisions and special contests, to unique categories that bring out the edge in live competitions.

Winners take home ribbons and cash premiums…and don’t forget, bragging rights. Entries on display throughout the Fair.

Check out the fair book below and mark your calendars to register in June.
