How to register for State Fair

Welcome to State Fair registration. If you have questions on how to enter please refer to help sheet link and video on how to register.

Entry fees for 4-H members at the 2019 South Dakota State Fair have been sponsored for this year’s State Fair. The 94th South Dakota Legislative Session provided $50,000 in allocated money to SDSU Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program for the sole purpose of eliminating or reducing fees for 4-H exhibitors at the 2019 South Dakota State Fair.

For the 2019 SD State Fair, there will be an August 13th registration deadline for all entries (livestock, Youth-in-Action,and static).

All families must register their 4-H members in Fair Entry for up to 10 livestock entries and any Youth-in-Action events they want to participate in by August 13th regardless of ribbon placing.

Static exhibits must be entered by August 13th. Each 4-H member may bring up to 10 static exhibits.

Animals may not be substituted after August 13th. The animals entered must be the ones exhibited.
