      Hi Raelynn,

      Thanks for your comment. We aren’t directly affiliated with any of the county fairs, and simply have the dates listed as a resource. You’d need to contact your country fair directly to learn more about becoming a vendor. Hope this helps!

      Hi Bill,

      We have updated our list to the best of our knowledge. Some fairs still have not released 2019 dates. Hope this helps! Thanks!
