For over 160 years, Paris Fair has been the place to show off the talents of our Community.  Visitors are awed by the thousands of exhibits entered in competitions from horticulture to livestock and everything in between.  Families and Community come together to compete in categories such as quilt making, pickling, junior crafts and photography.  A win means something, regardless of your age, culture or experience!  Join the fun – it’s easy to enter.
