2018 Mahnomen County Fair Important Dates

May 15 - Animal ID Deadline in 4HOnline

June 18 - County Fair Registration Deadline in FairEntry

June 28-30 -  Mahnomen County Fair


There has been some confusion on 4-H enrollment (4HOnline) and Fair registration (FairEntry).  4-H’ers must re-enroll in 4-HOnline every year.  Enrollment should be completed in October, but the deadline is May 15th if the youth would like to participate in the County Fair.  Before the fair, every 4-H’er will need to log on to FairEntry to register their projects for the County Fair.  If you are showing animals, you will need to ID them.

All animal ID’s need to be entered online at 4HOnline by each respective family.   Contact the 4-H office for ID tags or any ID questions.  February 15 is the deadline for Market Beef and Market Dairy animals.   May 15 is the deadline for all other animals.  Click here to find out the 4-H Animal ID requirements for each animal.

Any 4-H'er that misses a deadline (i.e. enrollment, Animal ID, fair registration) will be able to participate at the county fair, but the highest placing they can receive is a blue ribbon.  Mark these deadlines on your calendar to be sure you don't miss them. 

If a 4-H'er misses a deadline, they can use a "one-time" member exemption which will waive the consequences for the named deadline.  This waiver may be used only ONE time in a 4-H member's career.
