Managed By: Icon Here Laissez Faire
Description:
County fairs, state fairs, even city fairgrounds - we want them all! Show your hometown pride by listing your local agricultural fairgrounds - show us your cows, your horses, your corn, and, of course, your BAKED GOODS. "Coney Islands" and carnivals need not apply.
Expanded Description:
Many locations have a place to show their local agricultural efforts and have them judged every year - county fairgrounds, state fairgrounds, and even some towns have their OWN fairgrounds! We don't want to miss out on ANY fair, so we want to see them all!

To qualify, the fairgrounds must be the home of at least one agricultural fair (4H, FFA, etc.) per year. No carnival or "Coney Island" type fairgrounds will be accepted.

Instructions for Posting a Agricultural Fairgrounds Waymark:
Fairground submissions should be in the following format:

Fairground Name, City, State/Province

For example:
Noble County Fairground, Kendallville, IN

You must list the approximate time of year of the fair. Get as specific as you can, but even "Last week of September", "around Labor Day", would be acceptable.

Give as many details about the fair as possible - what kind of fair it is (4H, FFA, etc.), what is shown (types of livestock, crops, etc.) and any ancillary activities (street fair, for example) that are associated with it.

Coordinates should be taken at the main entranceway (or A main entranceway, if there is more than one). At least one photo of the fairgrounds is required. If possible, also include one of the fairground sign.

Photos of the fairground must be taken at an EVENT at the fairground. While we would prefer the photos be of an actual agricultural fair, this is not necessary.

You may use YOUR ORIGINAL* photos of ANY event taking place at the fairgrounds. They do NOT need to be of the agricultural fair.
No "empty fairground" photos will be accepted.

* - We will not accept submissions with photos from fair websites, publications, any photo not originally taken by you. Should we approve a submission that is later found to include someone else's photos, we will un-approve that submission until a photo taken by you is supplied instead.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Provide proof of your visit - a photo of you at the location, a photo of
one of the exhibits or contest entries, or even both. Get creative! If
you are logging at an event other than the main fair, include in your
log the type of event you attended at the fairgrounds. You must attend
an actual event at the fairgrounds. If you would like to log additional
visits at other kinds of events at the same fairgrounds, please do!
