The 2020 Tillamook County Fair will offer local kids and their animals a chance to shine with 4-H/FFA exhibits and the Junior Livestock Auction (JLAC). Fair board manager Camy VonSeggern said, “The fair board has been working hard to ensure that the youth in our county have a chance to participate in traditional 4-H/FFA events and the Junior Livestock Auction this year. We have a well-designed plan for youth fair participation that meets all of the Governor’s guidelines for public health safety.”
The 4-H/FFA and JLAC activities will be open to 4-H members and their families only this year, to control the number of people in the 4-H zone. Please see the 4-H/FFA schedule of events HERE.

The fair will host open class exhibits in the Main Building and the skating rink August 7-8. Open class exhibits include flowers and plants, quilts and textile arts, photography and art, culinary, crafts & hobbies and land products. “The community is invited to enter their open class exhibits this year.

“We are pleased to be able to invite the public to come to the fair August 7-8 and celebrate the amazing creativity on display by folks in Tillamook County,” said VonSeggern. “We can safely host 100 people in the buildings at one time; per the Governor’s guidelines, face coverings while indoors and social distancing are required.”
