Livestock Exhibitors


For many years the Gold Country Fair has been showcasing the talents and achievements of our local youth in the Placer County area. The friendly competitions are designed to inspire our youth and highlight their achievements!

Entering into the Gold Country Fair Jr. Livestock Competitive Exhibits Program allows you the opportunity to showcase what you have learned through your youth organization and your livestock projects. It allows you the ability to see how your project measures up to some of the best in our local area.

More than 50,000 visitors are expected to visit the Gold Country Fair this year. Your work is an integral part of the fair’s celebration, and we look forward to placing your talent on display at the Gold Country Fair.


We encourage you to enter today and begin making lasting memories for yourself, and for the thousands of our Fair patrons!

Good luck to all exhibitors!
