Welcome to the 2023 Marias Fair Open Class! What an exciting year to celebrate the local talents of our community. The Open Class portion of the fair gives residents of all ages from Toole, Pondera, Liberty and Glacier counties the opportunity to participate in the fair by exhibiting entries including livestock, garden plants, foods of all kinds, creative projects, and homemade & handcrafted items etc. Participation in the open class is free, although a small barn fee applies if entering beef, sheep or goats. Please feel free to enter your entries and exhibits online to speed up the check-in process. The lots are not in alphabetical order so look to the end of the list to find your item.
You have the opportunity to win ribbons and prize money (checks) for your items. We will be able to cash your check at the Sheriffs office (Under the grandstands on the west end) after all the judging. Look for the sign at the Open Class office when this will be.
ALSO THIS YEAR..YOU CAN PICK UP YOUR ITMES IN THE BUILDING THEY ARE DISPLAYED IN. WE WILL NOT BE MOVING YOUR ITMES. Please pick up your items on Sunday or call or text me to arrange pick up. The website to register your items and animals is 2023mariasfairopenclass.fairentry.com.
Good luck and I will see you at the fair!
