Do you like to play with your food? The North Dakota State Fair welcomes and encourages it on July 23 at 1 pm, the first Saturday of the fair. Join others as they creatively scoop, carve, color and create fresh produce into works of art in the 4-H Hall.
For those 12 and under, participants are asked to dig into their imagination and turn fruit into a human, car, animal, alien or anything else they can imagine with the help of markers, stickers and their creativity.
Those 12 and up are invited to take part in the Adult Carving Contest in one or two person teams. Teams are given one hour, utensils and toothpicks in order to transform the produce given to them in their mystery grocery bag into a work of art. The main requirement is that each piece of produce used should be scraped, skewered or carved.
The Fruit & Vegetable Carving Contest is at 1 pm on Saturday, July 23 in the 4-H Hall. Register online before the Fair or add it to your daily schedule and come that day. Check out the North Dakota State Fair on our website or on Facebook.
