Come one! Come all! Welcome to the 2020 Kansas VIRTUAL Fair and Talent Search, presented by Sleep Shoppe & Furniture Gallery and Eagle Communications!  

The pandemic sure has had a way of spoiling our FUN! We'll all miss the celebrations of Kansas life this September with the cancellation of the Kansas State Fair . . . and we think THAT is UN-fair! We know many of you had worked hard and planned to show off your talents and creativity for the chance at public recognition or even a blue ribbon! So we thought it would be fun to have a VIRTUAL fair where we could all still enjoy that quilt, flower arrangement, photography or art piece. And this year, we'll be featuring local musicians, bands and vocalists in our VIRTUAL Talent Search! 

prize winners will be chosen from the traditional competitive fair categories of Domestic Arts, Pride of Kansas, Photography & Art, Ag Showcase and State Fair Memories. 

In the Talent Search, the musical competition will heat up with a shot at winning $500 cash with the most votes in the "People's Choice" round, and $1000 cash (plus a performance at the 2021 State Fair) in our judges' choice for "Grand Prize" winner!  

Deadline for all entries has passed.  Traditional competitive fair category winners below will be chosen at RANDOM and announced September 28th. Meanwhile, the online voting will commence for the People's Choice musical Talent Search winner from September 19th through 11:59pm. on September 24th. Be sure to share your favorite musical performances on social media to garner the most votes possible! Winners will be announced for "People's Choice" and our judges' pick for "Grand Prize" on September 28th.

We hope the Kansas VIRTUAL Fair and Talent Search can help fill a little bit of the void we're all feeling this year. Good luck to all our participants!
