Have you recently discovered or renewed your love for baking, gardening, jewelry making or photography? There’s no need to keep your creativity to yourself, share it with the community at this year’s 2022 Douglas County Fair and Rodeo.
There are numerous categories in this year’s Creative Arts or Agriculture/Floriculture competitions for all ages presenting an opportunity for the whole family to get involved in this more than 100-year-old community event.
Now is the time to start planning for the contest that best matches your interests and abilities so you can practice and perfect your art, coach a younger member of the family and invite others to participate in this friendly competition, which will earn someone a blue ribbon.
Creative Arts entries will be accepted in person at the Douglas County Fairgrounds from noon to 4p.m. on Sunday, July 31 , and Ag/Floriculture entries from 7 to 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 4.
The Douglas County Fair & Rodeo kicks off July 29 and runs through Aug. 7. This year is packed with exciting events for every age group including two full weekends of the carnival, a farm to table brunch, BBQ contest, food trucks, live entertainment and traditional favorites such as the PRCA Rodeo, Mutton Bustin’, and 4-H events.
