“After the high level of popularity among the blueberry categories introduced last year, we have decided to keep many of them within the home cooking prize book, courtesy of Silver Valley Farms,” said organizers.

The theme of the 2016 competition is “Rainbow Dreams and Country Scenes.”

All entries must be submitted before July 11.

“This is the perfect opportunity to create family memories. Many families, large and small, join together and empty their treasure chest of creations made throughout the year, from school projects to Mother’s Day presents. This is also time for the adults to come and show off an exceptional garden, fine sewing skills, or handy work. We want to see it all.”

“We look forward to seeing everyone’s wonderful creations at our upcoming fair.”
