The Welcome Wreath Contest at the 2018 Oregon State Fair.

This innovative DIY contest happens Friday, August 31st at 2:00 pm in Columbia Hall.

Creativity is front and center on the Explore Oregon Stage.

Creating original welcome wreaths for your home’s front door may well be one of the highest forms of visual communication. Seriously, because nothing says “welcome” faster or more vividly than a handcrafted wreath of your own making. We want fairgoers to see what you can do, so please consider entering your best work.

Your entry can follow any theme you choose, though most folks tend to align with the various holidays on the calendar. All concepts—in any media—are welcome. Just be sure to enter only by August 17th. To check on space availability after August 17th, please email us at: [email protected]. Entries are limited to a total of 15 people.

Entries are to be dropped off at the information desk in Columbia Hall on the day of the contest, between the hours of 10:00 am and 1:30 pm.
