Hi Everyone. Its time to get ready for the Santa Cruz County Fair Homebrew Competition.
Fair Theme“Cowboy Boots and Country Roots”.There will be a special plaque for the entry that best meets the fair theme of: “Cowboy Boots and Country Roots”.To have your entry included: Put a short note on your entry form and/or your bottle labels, of why your entry meets the theme.
Changes this YearBecause we have grown so much (170 entries last year) we need more time for judging. Intake is now one week earlier. I expect to need additional judging sessions and will schedule them as we get closer to fair time.Judges, the Fairgrounds will not be sending out the letter asking you to judge and you no longer have to fill out the paperwork in advance. and send it by snail mail. I will be contacting people about judging as we get closer to the fair.On-line registration is strongly encouraged and I convinced the fair management to eliminate the conveneince fee. You can register on-line until Wednesday the 14th. When you drop off preregistered entries, put a copy of your receipt in with the bottles so I can match it up.The Entry fee is $5. It is now priced similarly to, but still less expensive than, the other nearby county fairs.
