Crafts & Hobbies

Handcrafts, 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!

Collectibles & Treasures

Collectibles are items that people enjoy collecting as a hobby. Treasures are items that have special meaning for the owner, either because they are handed down in the family, a rare find, or simply have great value to the owner. Both are priceless in our book!


Handcrafts 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.

Please note: Unfortunately, remote entry drop-off locations are not available for Creative Living competitions this year. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
