Fair Royalty

The Great Frederick Fair

Royal Ambassador Program

2021 Program Information, Rules, & Entry Form

In 1965, The Great Frederick Fair hosted the first Royalty Contest. The winner was selected by the spin of a wheel, and named Frederick County 4-H Queen. Like the fair itself, this contest has grown and evolved to include young men and Junior contestants.

This year, the contest will grow again to include all Youth Exhibitors regardless of their club or chapter affiliation.

Up to four Fair Royal Ambassadors will be named. Each Royal Ambassador will be awarded $1000 scholarships provided by The Great Frederick Fair, the Frederick County Agricultural Society with funds raised through sponsors, donations, and sales at Sunday evening’s Cake Auction.

The Royalty Contest moves to a new night, 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 14, 2021. This will coincide with shirt and pass distribution for all Youth Livestock Exhibitors.

The Royalty Contest returns to The Great Frederick Fair’s Grandstand where it was held for most of its fifty-six year history.
