Youth Still Exhibits at 2017 San Benito County Fair

Youth Still Exhibits at 2017 San Benito County Fair

It has come to our attention that there is some miss-information about the 4-H entries at the Fair.  Let’s clear things up.

This year the Fair has made some changes.  We will be displaying your 4-H still exhibits in the building that was formerly the Floriculture Building.  As usual each club will take turns hosting the building.  The list is below.  It is also listed in the Premium Book.

There has been some concern voiced about the security of your entries after fair hours, as well as some concerns about the dust settling on your entries.   The building does lock but as you may know some of the walls are constructed out of lattice.  It is our understanding that the lattice will be covered with plastic which will keep down some of the dust and make the building a little more secure. The Fair also has employees patrolling the fairgrounds ensuring livestock as well as still entries are safe. 

Hearing your concerns, a decision has been made to allow members to enter their items in the building, have them judged and then take them home and not have them displayed.  We will let you know what day pick up will be for those entries when you drop them off.  This solution should alleviate your safety concerns while still meeting the Fair requirement of all livestock exhibitors entering a still exhibit.
