Ellis County Fair

"Ellis County Fair Safari - It's a Jungle Out There" at the 2021 Ellis County Fair!


Everyone's help is needed to carry out the Fair. Click here for a list of Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent and other Volunteer roles that you can sign up for NOW. Other assignments that 4-H clubs will be asked to fill will be coming your way as the fair comes closer. Thanks.

Fair Entry System in 2021 - In all areas of 4-H and Open Class, you will be asked to go on-line to www.fairentry.com to pre-enter your exhibits.  This pre-entry will generate the exhibit tags for each of your exhibits.  No more hand writing all of those tags!!  We ask that you take time to enter your exhibits into the system by July 1, so the tags can be printed.

Here's a link to help walk you through the process - 2021 On-line Fair Entry Information

Here's a link to a step by step video to talk you through the process.
