Utah State Fair competitive exhibitors shall comply with the terms of the Exhibitor Entry Form, which constitutes a contract between the Utah State Fair Corporation and the exhibitor. For further guidelines, Exhibitors should refer to the exhibitor handbook which will be mailed to livestock and other department exhibitors for each year's fair, to other potential exhibitors upon request and will be available in Fair office after July 15th.

R325-1-2. Entry Form and Charge.

The exhibitor shall complete the entry form provided by the fair administration when entering exhibit items or animals in the fair. The exhibitor entry form may be photocopied for submission, however, the form may not be retyped or reproduced in any other manner. The exhibitor shall pay an entry charge which will be published in the exhibitor handbook. The entry form and charge must be submitted by dates published in the exhibitor handbook. The filing of a signed entry form by the exhibitor constitutes his acceptance of fair department rules and his eligibility for premium prize awards offered by the Utah State Fair Corporation.

When an exhibitor in creative arts, home arts, floriculture, fine arts and photography enters exhibits at the fair, the department supervisor shall place entry tags on the exhibits and claim checks shall be furnished to the exhibitor. At the close of the fair, on published release dates, the claim check shall be furnished to the fair by the exhibitor for reclaiming his item. The exhibitor at the time of exhibit release shall sign his entry form. The fair department exhibit supervisor shall also furnish a release permit to the exhibitor which will be checked by a security officer at the entrance gate. Those items entered in the floriculture (015), horticulture (011), and agriculture (012) departments shall become property of the Utah State Fair and will not be returned to exhibitor unless prior approval has been made in writing with the supervisor.
