Easier registration procedure created for San Juan County Fair entries

San Juan County Parks & Fair Department continues to streamline ways to help you participate in the County Fair. With online pre-registration for entries and a new pick-up and drop-off service on Orcas, Lopez and Shaw, it’s never been easier to be part of the Fair.


Now you can enter your exhibits into the Fair early and online. Visit https://fairentry.com/Fair/SignIn/20138 to begin entry and registration. You can also access the 2024 Exhibitor’s Guide here: https://www.sjcfair.org/p/thefair. If you have questions or would like personalized help, the Parks & Fair Department is hosting ‘Registration Help Events’ throughout the month of July.

"We implemented online registration and entry for Fair items make it easier to collect items from the entire County,” explains Parks & Fair Director Brandon Andrews. “Additionally, as locals begin to use the program and enter their items online, it means fewer lines and shorter wait times on the traditional ‘Entry Day’”.  


  • Tuesdays in July, 5 to 7 PM 
  • San Juan County Fairgrounds (849 Argyle Ave) in the Marie Boe Building 
  • No sign-up required, just show up and staff & volunteers will be ready to help.   


This year, the San Juan County’s Parks & Fair Department will pick-up and drop-off non-perishable Fair entries from Orcas, Lopez, and Shaw Islands.  

“We want to remove as many barriers as possible for residents to enter their passions and hobbies into the Fair,” Andrews said. “We understand that most people can't spend a day riding the ferry back-and-forth to both drop-off and pick-up their entry items. So, we'll come to you for both. We really hope to start seeing a lot more entries from the entire County."  


Pick-Up: Saturday, August 10 from 10 AM to 6 PM 


  • Lopez Island Grange (452 Richardson Rd.) 
  • Orcas Island Grange (3252 Orcas Rd) 
  • Shaw Community Center (42 Reef Net Bay Rd)

Drop-Off: Saturday, August 24, from 10 AM to 6 PM
