2019 Lyon County Fair 4-H Pre-entries due July 1!

The Blue Ribbon Lyon County Fair Online Pre-entry program is accepting entries! Please be sure to read your fair book carefully before making entries. A guide has been made to help create family accounts, so please take time to check out tips and tricks to make the process even easier.

Before you make your livestock entries, please have your tag numbers ready. You'll want to enter all livestock with the correct 4-H tag to be shown by that 4-Her. If necessary, animals may be substituted for a 4-Her so long as a properly tagged animal is substituted for the 4-Her, but 4-Hers should have a good idea of which animal(s) they intend to show in a specific class as the fair.

All entries will be made in the online system, including Rodeo, Rabbits and Poultry. If you want livestock insurance, you must stop by the Extension Office to pay by 5 p.m. on July 1. Insurance is $5 per animal.

All 4-H families will have to create a new account to pre-enter in the 2019 Lyon County Fair. 

Check out the entry guide: Tips for Online Fair Pre-Entry

Some division and classes at the fair, like non-perishable foods items or visual arts, allow you to enter one or more in the same class. Be sure to click on the entry twice if you plan to bring two items in a class, if it is allowed. It's also the same for two market animals. The number of entries and number of items you plan to bring should be the same.
