Welcome to the La Plata County Fair!!!!

Let's get started on how to work through Fair Entry.

Family Entry

  • Go to http://www.fairentry.com and click "find your fair."
  • Filter by state, click Search, and then click on the correct fair. (Or your county may provide you the direct url for your county fair.)
  • If you have a 4HOnline account, you will use that same login. If you are an FFA or Open Class exhibitor (First time) click on the link to create a FairEntry Account. (After that, if you are logging back in, enter the email & Password that you created and click the Sign In link.)
  • Enter you email address twice and click Create Account. Important: this must be valid email address, so that you can receive the necessary confirmation message.
  • 4HOnline users, click "Edit" by your name and begin adding entries. If NOT in 4HOnline, click "Account Creation", the information requested (all fields are required); Account Name, Phone, Password (enter twice to confirm). Click Create Account.
  • Click "Being Registration."

Exhibitor Information

If you fair is configured to accept both individual and team entries, click on the appropriate choice for your entry. Some fairs may only be configured for individual entries.

  • Enter the information into the four fields- all fields are required. Click Continue when all information is entered.
  • (If you entered/spelled something incorrectly on the previous screen, you have the option to Delete this Exhibitor on this screen.) Enter the information on the Contact Info screen- the only requirement field is the top Home Phone Number. You can use the same email address that you used to create the account, or an alternate one. If you wish to receive text messages, enter your cell phone number and carrier. That number can be the same as the Home Phone Number entered above, or different. Click Continue when you are finished entering data.
  • Enter your mailing address. All fields, except Address continued, are required. As the onscreen help states, the address entered here will be used foe mailing premium checks, etc. Click continue when all information is entered correctly.
  • If your fair set up custom fields/questions for you to answer, those will be step 4 on the progress bar at the top. Answer any questions, and click Continue.
  • If your fair requires you to upload any files for your entry, those will be step 5 on the progress bar. Upload requeted files, and click Continue.
  • Review your exhibitor information. If any information is incorrectly, click the green Edit button in the appropriate group to change it. When all information is correct, click Continue to Entries.

Creating Entries

Each exhibitor can have multiple entries. One entry must be made for each item, animal, class, etc. For example, if an exhibitor is bringing 2 photographs, 2 entries into the photography class must be created. If an exhibitor is showing one horse in 5 events, 5 class entries must be created. Once all entries have been created for the first exhibitor, you have the choice of creating another exhibitor in this family (and entries) r proceeding to check-out (submitting the entries, whether or not fees are charged.)

  • Click Add and Entry beside the correct exhibitor (if more than one has been created.)
  • Click Select beside the first department you wish to enter. Any department that are available for entry will be noted as "Not Available" with a short explanation.
  • After you select a department, you will see a list of divisions to select from, and then a list of available classes. Also notice that there are blue "Change" links in case you mistakenly select an incorrect department, division, or class.
  • After you have selected the class, click the green Continue button.
  • If this is an animal class entry, you may be required to specify which animal will be exhibited in this class; that may be optional; or you may NOT be able to specify the animal at entry time. If you are able to do that, you will see the option to "Add an animal."
  • Fill in all of the fields with information about the animal you intend to exhibit. Click Create and Add Animal when finished.
  • If the animal information was entered incorrectly, you have the option to either Remove From Entry (creating a new animal) or Edit Animal Details. When it's correct, click Continue.
  • Any questions or file uploads related to entry in this class will be next. Click Continue after answering those questions uploading documents.
  • The Review screen allows you to double check this entry for accuracy, and make any changes necessary. When the information is correct, click Continue and that class entry is complete.
  • When each class entry is complete, you have 3 choices for what to do next:
  1. If all class entries have been completed for one exhibitor, you can Register another Exhibitor in this family.
  2. If this exhibitor has more class entries to make, you can Add Another Entry for the Exhibitor.
  3. If all entries for all exhibitors in the family have been completed, Continue to Payment to finalize and submit your entries.
  • Review your entries for completeness and accuracy. Notice the summary and Detail buttons at the top of the list on the right. If there are errors, click on the green Entries section at the top of the page. Click Continue when all information is correct.
  • Read the payment instruction. NOTE: Even if you owe no money (no fees are charged) you must click Continue to the last "Confirm" step to submit your entries.
  • Read the information in the "After you Submit" section. You may also have to check a box to "Agree to Terms". Click Submit to finalize the entries for the exhibitors in this family. After you click Submit, no changes are possible to these entries.
