Crafts & Hobbies, Paper Arts, Poetry.

You'd be amazed at just how interested fairgoers are to see your work.

One of the coolest aspects of the Oregon State Fair is the broad interest people have in the creative efforts of their fellow Oregonians. That’s but one good reason to participate in our competitions this year. The other good reason is the chance to win ribbons! Find your favorite category and download your handbook to get started.

Crafts & Hobbies

Crafts & Hobbies are a year-round thing, and the Oregon State Fair is where to show off your efforts.

Paper Arts

We have numerous levels of competition that break out according to age and experience. Then we offer divisions and literally scores of classes, which means there are tons of ways to win ribbons.


Poetry has been part of the Oregon State Fair for about as long as anyone can remember, and for good reason. After all, ours is a very inspirational state.
