IMPORTANT! Due to the dramatic increase in the number and variety of available performers, we are requiring that each performer or group submit a promotional packet or EPK (electronic press kits) to help us in the selection process. This might include one or more of the following: documentation citing past awards or recognition of the performer or group, letters of recommendation, a listing of public appearances (including radio and TV), pictures and, if possible, a video or audio sample of your performance. Performers may substitute a website address if site contains all the above elements or a combination of hard copy and website information. Acts that complement our fair theme will get more consideration. EPK (electronic press kits) encouraged.

If your act is chosen you will be notified by the end of June if not sooner.

Your proposed act must be family oriented and appropriate for all ages.
