Registration for booth decoration and exhibits begins next weekend.

Fall is right around the corner and with it comes the 64th Annual DeKalb County V.F.W. Agriculture Fair set to take place from Sept. 23 until the 28.

The 2019 Fair Booth theme is “Land That I Love.” President and Fair Manager Charles Stephens said registration for exhibits is starting next weekend.

He said participants in Divisions one through eight could begin working on their booths Sept. 19 at 9 a.m. and the deadline for completion is noon on Sept. 21.

Scarecrows for Division 9 must be pre-registered by Sept. 13, and on-site Sept. 16 between 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and judging will take place on September 18.

Registration for Division 10 to 27, which includes canned foods, individual agricultural exhibits, baked and candy goods, art, photography, and needlework among a few others, is set to begin on Sept. 21 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sept. 22 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The DeKalb County V.F.W. Agriculture Fair has also renovated its website for individuals to visit.

He said the website had been completely reworked, making it easier to navigate anywhere you want to go.
