Theme Contests

New this year to the Washburn County Fair is the 'Fair Theme' and contests that connect to this theme! For the 2021 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.

Adding color to the fairgrounds has been the purpose of our Quilt-Topia challenge. The barn quilt is the final leg of this competition. This contest is open to anyone who has painted a barn quilt since the previous fair.
