Rules and Guidelines

  1. This is an Open Livestock Show for youth and adults. Parents and guardians should use their best judgment in what animal(s) their child shows based on their ability and strength.

  3. Animals must be free of disease and illness.
  4. Exhibitors and animals must arrive at the Wayne County Fair, Camden Park on July 31 at 10:00 AM for inspection (no exceptions); if disease or illness is evident, the animal may be asked to leave the fair. After inspection, the animal will remain at the fair until August 3 at 8:00 PM.
  5. Exhibitors will be given a pen to house their animal during the fair. Exhibitors will be responsible for providing feed, water, and care throughout the duration of the fair. Water spouts are available at Camden Park.
  6. All animals must remain in their cages at all times. The only exception is for bathing and or grooming. The public should not be in the pens, near animals nor holding small animals such as rabbits. Remember animals are there for the purpose of the Open Livestock Show and not for petting.
