FAIRFIELD — Entry forms are now available for this year’s Solano County Fair. The theme is Cruisin’ The County.  The event runs from July 30 through Aug. 3.

Details are outlined in the 2014 Blue Ribbon Competition Guidebook, available at www.scfair.org. Printed copies of the guidebook are available at county libraries, chamber offices and senior centers throughout the county as well as at the fairgrounds’ office, 900 Fairgrounds Drive in Vallejo.

Three new divisions are being introduced in the art entries. One focuses on art creations based on a mode of transportation that can be used to cruise the county, a second of art inspired by sites within the county and a third of entries representing any road in the county.

Two new photography competitions have also been created. The first celebrates the California State Parks’ 150th anniversary. Entries in the adult division can be any photograph taken in a California State Park.

Entries in the youth division can fall into one of three classes: Our Beautiful Parks – Scenic Views, Recreation In Our Parks, and What Our Parks Can Teach Us.

The second new photography competition for 2014 is a new class in the youth division, Photos of Solano County Fairgrounds, with the winner receiving a special Rick Ernst Memorial Best of Show Rosette. Ernst was a director on the board of the Solano County Fair Association. He died during the 2013 fair.

Exhibitors interested in entering this category must make prior arrangements to obtain access to the fairgrounds for photography. For appointments, call 551-2000.

Entry forms in all categories must be received by July 1 and exhibitors who submit entry forms by the early deadline of June 1 will receive two complimentary tickets to the fair.

Information is also available online for participation in the 2014 Solano Community Showcase. Entertainers must apply and submit a complete promotional packet for consideration.

Acts must be family oriented and appropriate for all ages. Acts that complement the fair theme are sought.

Applications and promotional packets are due by July 1. Contact Melissa Lamont at entertainment@SCFair.org or visit the fair’s website for information.

Those who aren’t quite ready for the Community Showcase can compete in the talent competition Aug. 1 and/or the Solano Stars! Vocal Competition, scheduled Aug. 2.

Cash prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place in each competition. The entry fee includes fair admission.

The talent competition is open to musical duos, trios, bands, dancers and other entertainers, while the Solano Stars! Vocal Competition is open to individual vocalists only.

All contestants must live in Solano County.
