Excitement fills the air as we prepare to host more than 600,000 fairgoers for the Kentucky State Fair. For many, the State Fair is the time to enjoy the unique aspects of Kentucky and the talents of its people.
Entries are now being accepted online and by mail for the 32 categories that comprise more than 7,000 classes of competition. Anyone is welcome to compete for cash prizes and blue ribbons.
Categories are as diverse as the people that live here. We have entries from homebrew beer to livestock, textiles to honey, tobacco to antiques and everything in between!
To request a print copy of the Premium Book, contact the Entry Department or call (502) 367-5190. The 2017 Kentucky State Fair is Aug. 17-27 at the Kentucky Exposition Center. For more information visit www.kystatefair.org or find the Fair on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
