Creative competitions are woven into the history of the Florida State Fair. Since our start in 1904, competitors from every corner of the state have pushed the boundaries of innovation as they battled it out for the blue-ribbon prize in quilting, baking, painting, or other skills. That tradition continues today as our youth and adult artists & crafters, bakers, woodworkers, horticulturalists, needle artists, photographers, and more bring their best work to be judged at the fair. Whether you’re a classically trained fine artist or a Lego sculpting expert, there’s room for your creativity to shine at the Florida State Fair.
