Notice to all exhibitors:
The Fair Association will take every precaution to ensure safety to all exhibitors, but in no case shall the Association or any officer or employee of the Jefferson Davis Parish Fair Association be held responsible for any loss, injury, death or disease of any character to any such property while the exhibit is on the Fairgrounds.
Due to the fact that it is easy to move tags and ribbons from one exhibit to another, all awards will be made from the judges' records.
Inappropriate exhibits will be excluded from competition and exposition.
Placings in each category will be at the discretion of the judge.
If you wish to add or delete entries listed in the fair catalog, call the fairgrounds office at (337) 368-2433.
