The Creative Living & Home Arts Department and the Horticulture Department is the Community's opportunity to join us in the Open Class Competitive Exhibits and Contests located inside the Lee Civic Center.
The primary purpose of the Fair is to provide a place to display livestock, agriculture, crafts and the like in a safe, family-oriented environment. The Southwest Florida & Lee County Fair is a special annual event of limited duration, with a specific objective of providing thousands of attendees an educational and entertainment experience, serving a main audience of family and youth, in a safe, family-oriented environment.
This year all registrations will be made electronically. Pre-Registration ends Wednesday, February 20th. If you miss the 'pre-registration deadline' you can register the day of 'drop-off' - you'll just have to register when you arrive, via computer. Please allow yourself plenty of time to register. Pre-registration will expedite the entry process for all of us.
Quick Tips for entering a competition at the Fair:
Don’t wait till the last minute to enter. At 11:59 pm on the day of online registration, no one will be in the office to answer your phone call if you have trouble entering. Don’t procrastinate, enter early! All registrations must be made online.
Print and/or read all the entry information provided before entering online. Some Divisions have additional rules. This information will aid you with the entry process and help to ensure you are entering the correct classes. Remember when you click “submit” at the end of the online entry process, you are agreeing that you have read, understand, and will abide by all rules and regulations found in the entry information.
Take your time with the entry process. Double-check your typing to confirm that all the information you have entered is correct before moving on to the next step. The information entered here will be on the entry tags that will go on your work during the Fair. Please make sure your name, address, and email address are correct.
When registering please don’t hit “Check Out” until you are done with all of your entries and ready for the Fair to receive them. Once you check out you won’t be able to make changes.
