Deadlines approach for August Ag Fair competitions


In anticipation of the 150th anniversary of the Ag Fair this August, Agricultural Society officials, also known as the “Fair ladies,” remind entrants that the early deadlines for the commemorative parade on August 16 and the special class entries is Wednesday, June 1.

Special classes include: vegetable farm, cultivated forage crops, manures, cheese, and lace work. A judging committee will visit each location prior to the fair.

There is also a “Golden Wedding Contest” in the following classes: married longest; most living children; most living grandchildren; and most living great-grandchildren.

Special entry forms with information about the special entries are available in a box on the porch at the Ag Hall in West Tisbury. This year’s theme is “Timeless Traditions.”
