Welcome to the North Dakota State Fair On-line Entry Process
If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer Browser, please use 6.0 or higher.
Before you begin the on-line entry process, print out a printer friendly version of these instructions (see icon at top right corner above this box), and visit the North Dakota State Fair website to download, print and read all rules for all of the department(s) you plan to enter.
1.) First you will Log-in or Register if new exhibitor
        • If you are a returning exhibitor and have forgotten your password, click on the link and your password will be emailed to you. If you don’t remember your email, call the office at 701-857-7620 and we can lookup that information for you. Please do not create a new exhibitor.
        • If you exhibited last year but did not enter online, you will get a message that says “Name already exists.” Your password has been automatically set to 2017 for this year. You will select the option “I have previously registered this year” and enter 2017 as your password and continue. Once you are signed in, you can edit your information to change your password and enter online.
        • Choose “Quick Group” ONLY if you will be submitting entries for multiple family members or multiple exhibitors that will be paying together, otherwise choose “Exhibitor” from the Login menu.  
2.) Session will expire after 20 minutes of inactivity so you should “save the cart” if you plan on leaving the machine for more than 20 minutes
3.) After Log-in or register/log-in as an exhibitor, you will CREATE ENTRIES, selecting the Department you want to enter and follow prompts.
        • Bold fields are Required information fields.
        • Youth competitors MUST enter age (as of Jan 1), date of birth, parental phone number.  
4.) When you are done adding entries, you will need to CHECK OUT (bottom right button) in order to complete this process and submit entries to the fair.
        • Payment by check or credit card (MC, VISA, Discover)
        • If remitting by check, NOTHING will be processed until payment is received
        • After completing your entry on-line, you will receive an email confirmation. If you do NOT receive a confirmation, your entry was NOT completed/received. (check your junk/spam email folder if necessary!)
