OSU Extension Seeks Open Food Preservation Exhibits at Deschutes County Fairgrounds

REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) — Do you have two or three exhibits you can present at the Deschutes County Fair this year?

OSU-Extension’s food preservation pre-registration numbers are down this year, so they need your help to showcase examples of safe canning methods. Your exhibits inspire others to learn more and try new items.

If you were able to pre-register by Thursday, July 28 before noon (you will need to go to the Open Class office in the Middle Sister building with your pre-registration information), you will be in the FAST registration line on Saturday, July 30 – 10:00 a.m. at 6 p.m. You can also collect Exhibit Tags and Hang Tags!

They can still take shows on Saturdays without pre-registration, but say they will need your patience as they will have to enter the information manually into the judges’ books. If young people participated in the project, they can participate too!
