Douglas County Fair

The Douglas County Fair is an annual event where 4-H’ers exhibit an end product of their current 4-H projects for evaluation. Judging is done  by a variety of evaluation methods. Exhibitors are awarded purple, blue, red, or white ribbons based upon a judge’s decision. Purple winners are eligible for State Fair if age requirements are met. A fair book explaining rules and classes is available in June. For more information about the fair visit www.dgcountyfair.com.
