You think you make the best chocolate chip cookies in the world? Well, belly up to the baking bar and lay your recipe on the table. The deadlines to enter the many contests and competitions at the L.A. County Fair are coming up – so no more procrastinating! You know you like to brag. We all do. It’s human nature. So what better way to say my cookies/cake/quilt/enchiladas/hummus is/are better than yours than by winning a blue ribbon? And it’s a lovely blue, too. Goes with everything.
There are different deadlines for contests for Culinary Styles, Tapestry and America’s Kids so be sure to check our website but here is a brief run-down (and remember these are deadlines for entry forms. Read all the rules and regulations for each individual contest regarding delivery deadlines):

  1. Hi, where can I find detailed entry rules & regulations for the featured contests? Specifically for the BBQ Sauce (Division 3018, Class 1) and Chili Cook-off entries? They do not appear to be listed in the Culinary Styles section. Thanks!
