     This will be the 165th year for the Old Reliable Germantown Fair.  We welcome you and your exhibits at the exhibit hall.  We will be accepting entries Tuesday, August 6th, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.  Pre-entries will be accepted by calling Donna Welte at 782-0052.  You may participate if you live in any Kentucky county.  Please check the catalog or website to make sure there is a class for the items you will be bringing.  No new classes will be added.

There are no specific entry fees; however, we are asking that you bring an item for the Blessing Boxes, food pantries or for the Back-Pack Programs at the schools.  Personal hygiene items such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, or deodorant will work for the Blessing Boxes.  Non-perishable food items which have not reached their expiration date are needed for the Back-Pack Programs and food pantries.  These can range from cereal bars, raisins, potted meats to beef jerky. We will post a more thorough list on the fair website (www.germantownfair.com).

     You may enter only one item per class.  All items exhibited must be made or grown by the exhibitor, except in the Antiques category.  Garden and other soil grown items will be judged on uniformity and quality rather than size, unless specified otherwise, such as largest in some classes.

Exhibitors must leave the Exhibit Hall during judging; judges will not have access to the name of the owner of the exhibits.  All exhibits will receive the best of care. Exhibits are secured behind locked areas.  However, the fair company is not responsible for theft, fire, or breakage of items.

Each entry will be given a ticket with your exhibitor number, not your name.  Bring your entry tickets to claim items you pick up on Saturday.  Premium monies will be available at the time of pick-up on Saturday, August 10th, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. until Noon.  The fair board will not be responsible for any exhibits left after that time.
