The Fair will pay cash awards only on those classes specified and only the Judging Sheet will be the basis for the cash award payments. Ribbons and exhibitor tags have no value as to payment.
Checks covering awards in all classes will be promptly issued. All checks shall be made payable to the exhibitor in whose name the entry was made and void after 6 months from the date issued.
Although reasonable efforts will be undertaken to safeguard exhibitors’ property against loss, damage or theft, the County of Napa, the Napa County Fair and/or its contractors will not be responsible for any loss, damage or theft of exhibitors’ property brought on the premises during the period of the Napa County Fair & Fireworks. Every precaution will be taken in the handling and exhibiting of work; however, the exhibit must be picked up on Pickup Day. Exhibits not claimed one day after Pickup Day will be donated or discarded.
Fair Management has the authority to clarify this schedule for the proper conduct of the Fair, and exhibitors must in all cases conform. Accepted works shall NOT BE REMOVED from displays prior to the Pickup Day stated in these rules. Work must remain as displayed.
Fair Management reserves the right to cancel entries and cash and special awards and request the removal of exhibits from the Fairgrounds where exhibitors are disorderly,
endangering or disturbing the public and other exhibitors.
