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

Exhibitor entry fees are 15.00 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.


The deadline for online entries has passed. You can still enter by visiting our office in Marathon Park. We like all entries to be in by the Friday before the week of the fair, but will accept late entries.

Open Class Judging

All Open Class projects are entered on Tuesday of the Fair. Judging takes place on Wednesday of the Fair.

New for 2019: Department 14, 15 and 22 will be in the Fieldhouse. All other departments will be located in the South wing of the exhibition building.
