Calling all creative, talented, artistic, green-thumbed, and technologically savvy Fairgoers, the Competitive Exhibits program will be back in-person this summer! Marin County Fair dates are June 30 through July 4, 2023 so mark your calendars now!

This year’s theme is a celebration of all things Electrifying! We’re celebrating all things electric, solar, and charged with excitement and will offer many themed categories to inspire creativity of all kinds.

With the return of our in person Competitive Exhibits after a multi-year hiatus, we’re rebuilding most of the program from the ground up. This is both a chance to re-vamp our Exhibitors Guide, and review all the amazing classes. We’re looking forward to making the program as engaging as possible, so please bear with us through all the changes.

The Competitive Exhibits Guide will be available on our website at 5:00pm on Friday, March 31,2023. Registration will open on April 17, 2023. Judges and Sponsors will be announced via our website on June 1, 2023. The deadline for Competitive Exhibits Registration for most categories is June 5, 2023. Guide pages are subject to change, so please review your Division before registering.
