This year’s 99th South Mountain Fair has exhibiting opportunities for everyone. Visit the South Mountain Fair online at for information about everything from entering animals to arts and crafts. Department 13 is for Vegetable entries and Department 17 is for Floral and Horticulture entries.

Entering Department 13 Vegetables: Vegetable exhibitors should read and follow entry rules that specify how many individual specimens are required to enter a class plus provide the name of the specimen variety where appropriate. Choose specimens that would bring the highest market price, not necessarily the largest and do not mix varieties. A potato entry, for example, requires three tubers of uniform size and stated known variety such as Pontiac.
