San Diego County Fair
Contests & Competitive Exhibits  

Home and Hobby

This exhibit features the home arts and skills that have been a part of county fairs since they began. A blue ribbon for the best pie or quilt is as valued today as it was a century ago. In addition to displays of textile, crafts and cooking projects, this exhibit also awards ribbons and prizes for the best collections, some traditional, some unique.

Entry information coming soon.
