Exhibit Entry Requirements
-No entry fees are charged for exhibits except for those entered in Poultry, Pigeons and Rabbits.
-Exhibitors for all departments except for Livestock, Poultry, Pigeons and Rabbits must obtain an entry number from the Secretary of Exhibits Office in the Agriculture Building prior to submitting the entry form and exhibit to the Department Superintendent.
-The times for entering exhibits are listed under the specific department sections in the Premium Book. Any exhibit submitted after the deadline may be accepted for exhibit only, provided the Superintendent determines there is sufficient space; however, such exhibits will not be judged.Except in the Photography, Poultry, Pigeons and Rabbits Departments, no one may submit more than one entry in each lot, although an individual may compete in as many lots as desired.
-No exhibit from the previous year’s Fair may be submitted unless there has been a significant subsequent modification or addition to the exhibit.
-Each entry must have been raised, produced or created as an exhibit by the exhibitor. Except for the FFA, Education, and 4-H departments, exhibit entries may have been raised, produced or created in Cochise County or any county in the United States that touches Cochise County, including Greenlee, Graham, Santa Cruz, Pima, and Hidalgo (NM) counties.
-Entries must have been completed within 12 months prior to the opening date of the Fair. Upon request of the Department Superintendent, an exhibitor may be required to certify compliance with these rules as a condition of entry. A Superintendent who, for any reason, deems an entry unsatisfactory, may refuse to accept it.
-Exhibits must be picked up between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday, the last day of the Fair. An exhibit which remains on the Fairgrounds after 6 p.m. on Sunday may be disposed of by the Department Superintendent in any manner deemed appropriate or convenient.
-While the Fair Association tries to take reasonable care of exhibits, the Fair is not responsible for breakage, loss or damage, and each exhibitor assumes the risk of possible breakage, loss or damage as a condition of exhibiting an item.
