Competitive Exhibits

We are thrilled to showcase the talented work of those who call Fresno County home! This is what fairs are all about - showcasing the best of their community! Don't forget, this year's theme is Welcome to Ahs so be sure to showcase that in the entries where applicable! The idea behind Welcome to Ahs is capturing that moment when Fairgoers fully immerse themselves in the Fair experience. From that first bite of a corn dog or cinnamon roll; to sitting on the grass in the Pavilion to relax and watch a show or taking a refreshing sip of some local craft brew; to having the cool Fall breeze blow through their hair as they ride the Ferris Wheel to the top for gorgeous Fair views – it is all part of the wonder and magic of The Big Fresno Fair! To play on the Wizard of Oz concept, our dirt road the tractor drives along has been replaced with a “yellow brick road” that leads to the Fair – Welcome to Ahs.
