Artisans, craft-makers, botanists, gardeners and overall Long Island Fair enthusiasts are invited to plan their entry for the Annual Blue Ribbon contest at the Old Bethpage Village Restoration, which takes place this year on Sept. 24, 25, 30, and Oct. 1 and 2. The deadline for entry forms for Advanced, Poetry and Scarecrow building is 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 3; all other entries are due by 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10.

“The Long Island Fair, one of America’s oldest agricultural festivals, is a family-friendly festival offering a range of attractions, including exotic animals, reptile shows, pony and carnival rides, as well as traditional live music.” County Executive Ed Mangano stated, “I invite residents and visitors to join us at the Long Island Fair.”

As has been the custom each year, residents are invited to enter handcrafts, original artwork, needlework, produce, floral arrangements, models, and culinary delights into the 5-day event and vie for the “best in class” prize. This year, each exhibitor will receive two free passes to visit the fair. Earn additional free passes by referring friends to join into the competitions and by entering more than one item into certain categories.

For details and contest entry forms, visit www.lifair.org and click on Competitive Exhibits, call the Long Island Fair Office at 516-572-0246 to request a copy of the Competitive Exhibit Handbook, or check your local library for entry forms. Entries may also be submitted online!
