Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a resident of Loudoun County to enter an exhibit?
Open exhibitors do not need to be residents of Loudoun County. 4-H youth exhibitors must be registered members of a Loudoun County 4-H club. Youth exhibitors ages 8-15 who are not members of a Loudoun County 4-H club can enter as open youth exhibitors.
How do I pay for my entries?
Only credit card payments will be accepted online during the registration process. If you encounter any issues with payment, please contact the Showcase committee at Blue.Ribbon@LoudounCountyFair.com.

Yes, you may continue to add entries and pay for them through the July 18 deadline.
Can I enter a new item during drop off?
