Open Class

The Wisconsin Valley Fair has around 150 Open Class exhibitors each year! The Open Class department is made up of young and young-at-heart participants that work on improving their skills in related projects throughout the year. The purpose of the department is for exhibitors of all ages to display their accomplished goals and projects, and get feedback from state-licensed judges to improve for the future. The Wisconsin Valley Fair is a state-aided fair, which regulates the how places are awarded, and the amount of premiums given out.

Open Class Enrollment

Open Class exhibitors can begin submitting Wisconsin Valley Fair entries on May 1 at the link below. Online entries will be accepted until July 19. The last day for im-person entries is July 26 at noon. Exhibitor entry fees are 17.00 and include a season pass (in order to drop off and pick up entries with ease). There is a $1.00 convenience fee for entering online. Entry tags and the exhibitor ticket will be mailed out unless otherwise specified.
