Competitive Exhibits Program

So Happy Together!

After a multi-year hiatus of our in person event due to COVID-19, the Marin County Fair’s art competitions which usually take place indoors in the Exhibit Hall and Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium’s Redwood Foyer, will remain online for one more year. Entries will be judged on images submitted online only, and winners will be awarded ribbons, but no cash prizes this year. For details, see the Art and Plant Competition Brochure below.

The agriculture competitions, on the other hand, will take place outdoors and will include poultry, rabbits, sheep dog trials, pocket pets, dog care and training, small animal round robin showmanship, and more. Ribbons and cash prizes will be awarded. For more information, please go to the Agriculture Competition Brochure below.

The Plein Air painting competition on the first day of the Fair will take place outdoors. Entry information is below.
