Market classes are only open to residents of Solano County or members of a Solano County 4-H Club, FFA Chapter or Recognized Grange. Independent Juniors must be a resident of Solano County, if the Independent has graduated from high school and meets the age requirements as specified in the rules, then they must have, at the time of graduation, been a Solano County resident and currently reside in Solano County. If an exhibitor is enrolled in an out-of-county (not Solano County) 4-H/FFA and /or Grange, and exhibits and sells market livestock at a junior livestock auction at an out of county (not Solano County) fairgrounds, regardless of whether the show or sale is sponsored by a Fair, then their eligibility lies in the county in which the 4-H/FFA and/or Grange is registered and therefore the exhibitor is not eligible to exhibit a market animal at the Dixon May Fair as an independent, 4-H/FFA and/or Grange member. Independent juniors are encouraged to contact the fair, prior to December 20, to assure they are eligible to exhibit a market animal at the Dixon May Fair. Contact the Fair office at 707 678-5529 with any questions.
