Agriculture & Horticulture Competitions at the Oregon State Fair

We have three categories of competition that capture the true spirit of Oregon.

One of our favorite things about the 2018 Oregon State Fair is that there are so many wonderful ways to participate. The three Agriculture & Horticulture competitions are a perfect example—all comers are welcome. So check out the handbooks below to see when contest suits you best!

Farm & Garden

There are three basic divisions in this classic competition for 2018: entries that remain throughout the run of the fair, entries for the first half of the Fair, and entries for the second half of the Fair. So many opportunities. So much fun! Handbook

Honey & Products of the Hive

For those with a special affinity for the world of honeybees, and the delicious result of their industrious ways, this 2018 competition is a must. We offer divisions for youth and adults, though young folks can also choose to compete with the adults. Handbook


Our 2018 floral competitions are simply blooming with opportunity. It all begins with a green thumb, of course. But where it ends—possibly with a beautiful ribbon in hand—is absolutely up to you…and the judges, too. Handbook

Use this volunteer form to participate in any of these events!
