NEW MILFORD — The Harford Fair includes 26 different departments in which to display items for judging – from arts and crafts to baked goods – and the deadline to enter is Aug. 1. Participants should use only the 2016 up-to-date class listings in each department, as there are many changes from last year’s fair. The categories, rules, and the entry blanks can be found online at harfordfair.com.
The fair will be held Aug. 22 through 27.
In addition to the department entries, other contests include the Create the Cover Contest for 2017, Harford Fair Queen Contest, a Fun and Safety Poster Contest, the Woodsman’s Contest, the Animal Costume Dressing Contest, and the Turkey Calling Contest. Harford Fair is proud to announce the sponsorship of “PA Preferred” Products for the Chocolate Baking Contest, the Angel Food Cake Contest, and the Apple Pie Contest.
The first place winner of each of these contests is eligible to enter the 2017 PA Farm Show competition in January.
Other contests and rules for traditional events at the Harford Fair can be found on the fair website. For more information, call 570-434-4300, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
