HOME ARTS

We will begin paying out premiums as early as possible, in order to provide you with pocket money as you go to the Fair. Be sure to check back in to the Home Arts department on Saturday to pick up your winnings.

Also be sure to read the Home Arts rules and schedule, as well as the rules for each department you enter.

2024 HA Premium Book

Once you know what you’d like to enter, you can visit the main Home Arts Building, either Wednesday, August 28th  8am to 6pm, or Thursday, August 29th   8 AM – 12:30 PM. Please keep in mind that NO entries will be accepted after 12:30 PM on Thursday. All entries need to be turned in before this time in order to be accepted.

Whether you’ve entered online or may want to do it in person the way we’ve always done it, bring your entries to the Goicoechea Home Arts Building during check-in hours. We’ll get you your exhibit tags and make sure your entries get where they’re supposed to go. We’ll close the doors at 12:30 PM sharp and will start the judging process at that time. Doors will re-open at 1 PM Friday, and you’ll be able to see how your work stacks up against that of other Nevada residents.

Please remember that entering the Home Arts competitions costs $7 per exhibitor, per 10 items. That means you can enter 10 exhibits for the same price that you can enter one! If you have more than 10 items it will be another $5 per additional 10 items.

Also be sure to read the Home Arts rules and schedule, as well as the rules for each department you enter. The schedule can be found below and in the 2024 Home Arts Premium Book along with the rules for each department.
