Fair registration will be done again online this year! We will be using FairEntry to handle all aspects of the county fair paperwork, from registration, animal check-in, to entry cards!  This is the same program used last year. Here is the link to our Crow Wing County Fair Entry website where you will go to start the process of registering your projects for the fair. If you are a first time user or need a refresher on how to get started find the user guide in the downloads section below.

As with anything new, there will always be questions, and the Extension Staff are here to help! We will be available in the office or by phone 824-1065, Monday - Thursday 9-5, and Fridays typically 9-3.

There are also resources available on the Minnesota 4-H FairEntry webpage to assist with registration.

If you would like to submit a paper copy to the office for staff to enter, you can do so by downloading the Fair Entry Paper Submission which can be found in the downloads below. If submitting a paper copy please make sure to do so on or before Friday, July 14th by 3pm to the Extension Office--
326 Laurel St, STE 11
Brainerd, MN 56401

There isn’t a way for clubs to register their projects themselves. So if club leaders could complete a paper form and submit it to the office for staff to enter that would be great.

If you have questions or concerns please call or e-mail the office 824-1065 or
