The Pasco County Fair Association has adopted a new rule beginning June 1, 2020 for our 2021 fair.
This rule is for ALL Market Agriculture Projects. An exhibitor must be a member of a Pasco County 4-H or FFA. Exhibitor must also either live in Pasco County or attend a Pasco County School. If an exhibitor was eligible to show in the 2020 fair but would not be eligible under this new rule, they will be Grandfathered in. This Grandfather Rule will be in place as long as the exhibitor is a continuous exhibitor. Exhibitor must register and tag project to be eligible each year.
