The Merced County Fair said that those who entered exhibits in this year’s fair face a deadline of Saturday, June 5, to bring them to the fairgrounds at 900 Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

There are a few exceptions, but most exhibits must be received June 5. Items will be accepted from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for divisions, including crafts and hobbies, clothing and textiles, preserved foods, fine arts and photography. The deadline to submit fair entry forms already has passed.
