    Dear Exhibitor:

    Welcome to the 2016 Tulare County Fair! 2014 started the revitalization of the Tulare County

    Fair and grounds. Our efforts will continue again this year. We appreciate all of the support

    from 4-H and FFA Clubs, parents, exhibitors and community leaders. It has a huge group

    effort. THANK YOU! We have a FANTASTIC, EXCITING Fair planned for you this year. In

    addition to a fantastic livestock show we are once again offering all fair goers National

    Entertainment Acts, hands-on education for school children and some great exhibits. The

    Foundation will host the annual kick-off CCA Pro Rodeo on September 10 th . This year we will

    have 2 nights of Monster Trucks and the Tractor Pulls and Demolition Derby will both be

    returning. We are thrilled you have decided to enter YOUR County Fair.

    This year’s Fair dates are September 14-18, 2016 and the theme is FARMS * FOOD * FAMILY * FUN, as we showcase

    the Bounty of our County throughout the Fair. Please help us spread the word to all your friends and family. Entries close

    August 5 th

    , 2016. In addition to entering livestock please consider entering an “indoor exhibit”.

    Last year the Tulare County Fair hit a record attendance of over 117,000! We are working to continue the trend and host

    another record Fair. We continue to need the assistance of each and every livestock exhibitor and their families to assist us

    with the marketing efforts for the Fair. We will have Fair posters available for each and every exhibitor to help us distribute

    and spread the word about the Fair. I feel each exhibitor and their parents are the best Fair ambassadors and we ask you to

    help promote the Fair. The Tulare County Fair continues to go through changes due to the lack of state funding. Last year’s

    Fair assisted in the increased financial stability of the Fair, but we still have a long way to go to ensure the Fair is financially

    sustainable.

    In order to continue to provide our exhibitors with the same awards, premiums and classes we have mounted an aggressive

    sponsorship program. If you are interested in sponsoring an award, or know someone who may like to help support this

    program, please visit tcfair.org for the sponsorship form.

    The Fair office and Board of Directors continues to decrease expenses. The volunteer program has become vital to the

    Fairgrounds. We will again host our workdays prior to the Fair. Please check with your FFA and 4-H leaders for the dates.

    Species will be represented by a volunteer chairperson and their committee. Each show will have volunteers working the

    rings, announcing and clerking the show. Positions are still needed, if you would like to volunteer please fill out the form on-

    line.

    Each livestock exhibitor will receive one LIVESTOCK EXHIBITOR ENTRY PASS with their entry. Each exhibitor pass

    is good for every day of the fair. Each livestock family will need to purchase a seasonal parking pass for $25.00, prior to

    September 13 th , 2016. These parking passes give you in/out privileges. Exhibitors may purchase additional season entry for

    a discounted rate of $30.00 or parking passes at the livestock office from September 11 th to September 13

    th , 2016.

    Our carnival partner Helms and Sons is offering an exclusive livestock exhibitors ONLY $30.00 for a wristband that will be

    good for rides for the entire Fair. Please read the attached flyer carefully. Wristbands must be purchased at time of entry

    and there is a limit of only one per livestock exhibitor. The program offers NO REFUNDS and is limited to livestock

    exhibitors ONLY.

    The Board of Directors and staff are working to assemble the best entertainers, shows and exhibits during the 95 th

    annual

    Tulare County Fair. If you have any questions, please call the Fair office, we look forward to assisting you with ANY of

    your Fair needs or questions. Also, please read the Fair Rules located in the back of the Handbook and the State Rules

    located on our web page. It is each exhibitor’s responsibility to understand and follow the rules.

    See You In September,
