This year, The Great Frederick Fair will hold the 2022 Cake Auction to support scholarships and Ag Education Programs throughout the Great Frederick Fair. The Cake Auction will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 18, 2022 in Building 18, the  South Side Tire & Auto Beef Show Ring.

Any Youth Exhibitor whose Cake or Pie is sold at the Cake Auction will have 10% of the sale price added to their premium check!

So, get those cakes and pies entered to increase your premium check and support The Great Frederick Fair’s Scholarships and Ag Education Programs!

Deadline for Youth Baked Goods Entries is August, 31

For Registering

Exhibitor: An individual exhibitor.

Quick Group: Individual exhibitors registering as a “quick group” create individual logins and are able to check out with one cart, at one time. After check out, these entries separate and show up as transactions under the individual login.

Team/Company: This allows you to register as a farm name/team/company instead of a “First, Last.”

*USE Team/Company FOR CLUB ENTRIES. Enter the 1 item, then put the child’s name in Description. Then, add similar item and add another child’s name. Repeat for all entries. It enters items as a club and the premium check is cut to the club, as a whole. For FFA teachers registering entire class entries, the students name will be placed in the description. For 4-H Club/Clover leaders, the kid’s name is in description.

Club/School: These are preset in the system with passwords, issued by the fair admin office. This is to log in and look at entries that were submitted with your club name associated.

HELPFUL TIP:

“Add Similar Entry” allows you to enter an item and click “add similar entry” to copy the exact same item again, enabling you to change the division, class it falls under. (This will make it easier to register the same animal for both 4-H/FFA and Open. Also a useful tool for FFA advisors entering 30 children for the same item.)
