TAYLORVILLE — Exhibits of Agriculture Products, Horticulture, Floriculture, Culinary, Textiles, Fine Arts and Junior Homemaker Open Class will again make rise to much competition at the 88th Annual Christian County Fair. As in years past these classes have been excitedly anticipated.
We tend to have many repeat competitors, plus those who are new to the world of competition. As Superintendents we encourage the novice and experienced exhibitors. We try to coordinate Junior Open exhibits with classes from 4-H that the youth can cross over competition.
Although some classes are pretty standard such as the Agriculture Dept J with the tallest corn stalk with ears to three table beets with tops; there are 54 classes. Dept K, Horticulture is the smallest with only 4 classes. Floriculture has 57 classes which we try to switch around from time to time to add variety to the Artistic
arrangements. The Culinary Dept O never disappoints with 33 classes of delectable treats. Textiles and Fine Arts Dept. M, allows the artistic talents to prevail with 32 classes covering pottery/sculpture to sewing. Dept. P. Junior Open-18 yrs. and under has 42 classes.
We use judges with abundant knowledge in their chosen field. We also encourage any suggestions on how to better improve your exhibiting experience. The Superintendents are available to answer any questions you may have.
