Creative Fairgoers, your day has finally arrived!  The Erie County Fair has announced all the competitions and categories that are going on this year at the Fair!

Today is the day that you will see exactly how many of the competitions you want to enter.  There are so many and often times, the choices are really hard to choose which one you want to compete it.  But, if you are creative and energetic, you can enter some or all for one entry fee.  What could be better than that! 

Those of you with a green thumb will probably be considering either the flower category or the vegetable category.  And in each one of those categories, there are a ton of subcategories.    If your specialty is violets or succulents, you will enter those flower categories for sure.  If your specialty is tomatoes or green peppers, there is a vegetable category for you too!
