Kimball/Banner County Fair introduces open class


July 20, 2017

After more than a decade, Kimball County Fair will have an open class for adults and youth who are not in 4-H but wish to show sewing, crafts and more.

Open class exhibits can include needlework such as knitting, crochet and hand or machine embroidery or tatting, quilts and sewing anything from placemats to clothing.

Crafts entered into the open class can be wood working, painting, paper crafts or porcelain/ceramics and photography, in both color or black and white, is accepted as well.

Exhibitors can enter foods in breads, cakes, pies, cookies/candy, snack mixes, rolls/muffins or biscuits and decorated cupcakes, cakes or cookies. There is also a miscellaneous category as well as one for food preservation.

Floral entries can be annual, biennial or perennial as well as house plants and miscellaneous categories such as fairy gardens, terrariums, hanging baskets and desert gardens. Other Horticulture exhibits such as vegetables and fruit are also accepted.

Ribbons will be awarded and any entry receiving a purple ribbon can be named reserve or grand champion. Open Class entires can progress to the Nebraska State Fair as well.

Open Class entries have their own set of rules, and anyone interested can find those at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Office located in the Kimball County Courthouse Annex.

Fair begins on Aug. 7 – we hope to see you there!
