Litchfield County Contest: Fair Flags

Sponsored by Litchfield County Council of Fairs


Fair Flags

Who may enter

Contest is open to all residents of Connecticut. Prizes will be awarded in two divisions at each fair: Youth (up to age 15) and Adult (age 16 and over).

Local Contest

Exhibits may be entered at any fair which is a member of the Litchfield County Council of Fairs. Contestants may enter their exhibit in as many fairs as they wish until they win first prize. At that time they will be representing the Fair at the Litchfield County Council of Fairs Contest in the fall. If it is found that the contestant has entered and won first prize in more than one Litchfield County Council Fair, they will be disqualified from participating in the Litchfield County Council of Fairs contest in the fall of 2023.

If for any reason, the first place contestant cannot participate in the fall contest, the second place winner of that fair will be the representative.

First prize winners at each fair in both the Youth and Adult divisions will be awarded the blue rosettes by the Litchfield County Council of Fairs. Please contact the fair you are representing for information about the dinner, time and place of the fall meeting.

County Contest

Representative first place winners from each fair for both junior and senior divisions will be eligible to enter their exhibit in the County Contest held at the Fall meeting of the Litchfield County Council of Fairs on the last Wednesday in October. Entries must be in place by 6:30 PM to be judged.

Contest Rules
