Theme Contests

New this year to the Washburn County Fair is the 'Fair Theme' and contests that connect to this theme! For the 2019 & 2020 fairs the theme is,

"How Sweet it is!"

There are two Fair Theme contests for you

to participate in this year!


'A Barn Quilt Challenge'
This geometric-based square is the perfect opportunity to funnel your quilting creativity into a show-stopping square that will stop Fair-goers in their tracks! The winning quilt square will be reproduced and proudly placed on one of the barns at the Washburn County Fairgrounds. 
Due to COVID-19 there has been some changes to the Barn Quilt Challenge but it will still take place, regardless if there is a 2020 Fair or not! Entries should be mailed in and winners will be announced via social media!
See the attached documents for more information!!
