The Open Class Division is financially independent of the Jefferson County Fair Board. The Open Class Division is supported by those who exhibit, so its success depends on the exhibitors.
Everyone can enter projects in the Open Class Division. Projects range from arts and crafts; handwork, such as quilts, embroidery, crochet, sewing and other items; food; flowers; fruits and vegetables; agriculture products; and more.
The Open Class Division also sponsors several different contests and games during the fair, like a bubble gum big bubble contest, watermelon seed spitting, rubber-chicken throwing and more.
In its duct tape contest, entries had to be completely made of or covered in duct tape.
The contest was divided into two age divisions with three categories: clothing; fashion accessories; and items for the home or yard.
The winners were: Best Clothing - Rachel Funkhouser, with a dress; Best Fashion Accessory - Allyson Farley, with a wallet; and Best Item for the Home or Yard - Alexandra Farley, with a coozie.
