2024 Illinois State Fair - Woodworking competition

We will be helping to coordinate those who wish to participate in the State Fair Woodworking competition again.   We encourage all to make something to submit to the competition in any and all categories.

For more information you can review the following resources:

Please review this document where our President lays out an overview of the woodworking categories and process for registering your entry this year.

The State Fair will not publish their "Premium Book" that describes the categories, limitations and prizes this year, Instead they are publishing individual instructions for each competition along with instructions on their site.  Here are some relevant links:
