Nelson County Fair and 4-H Achievement Days

Livestock Identification Forms - Due May 17th

If you have been to the Live Animal Livestock Judging Event, you will know that space is limited. To help us better plan to accommodate all animals, we ask that you provide us with Livestock ID forms by May 17th, 2019. When you register for the fair (see below), you will need to register your animals again.

Livestock ID Forms - Due May 17th

Registering for the Fair - Due June 21st 

In 2019, North Dakota rolled out a NEW Fair Registration System called FairEntry.  Nelson County's Fair will also run on Fair Entry! Please be patient if you are experiencing hiccups as we are all learning this system for the first time! Kristen Blasey has been wonderful support for the Office in learning and setting up the software, please if you have questions, and she will return your reply. 

Because this is a new system, we are asking all 4-Her's to complete both a paper copy of registration AND online FairEntry. Please complete the paper registration first and copy it into FairEntry. We will verify your Fair Entry Registration by comparing it to the handed in paper copy. Instructions on completing Fair Entry are below.

Step 1: Read the Nelson County Fair Guidelines and ND State Fair 4-H Exhibit List Booklet

Step 2: Complete a paper registration form: 4-H Exhibit Entry Form fillable pdf

Step 3: Have the Fair Entry Registration Instructions Handy

Step 4: Sign-in to Fair Entry to Register for the Nelson County Fair and 4-H Achievement Days and complete registration by June 21st!
