This Year's Pierce County Fair is Aug. 12-15. Entry day for all exhibits (except livestock) is Wednesday, Aug. 11, with judging beginning on Thursday.

In 2009 over $15,500 was awarded in cash premiums to Pierce County youth and adults who entered.

There are 15 different open class departments with classes ranging from Little Dairyman to Charolais bull calves, Little Shepherd to Pekin ducks, alfalfa to roses, oil painting to ceramics, nature photography to cakes, breads to quilts and don't forget homemade wines.

To enter an exhibit in the Pierce County's Open Class competition, fill out the entry blank found in the Pierce County Fairbook on page 13 and submit by June 22 to the Fair Office at the Seyforth Building on the fairgrounds in Ellsworth.
