Interpretation of Rules

The Kansas State Fair Board, through its management, makes all rules and regulations and reserves the final and absolute right to interpret these rules and regulations. Management will arbitrarily settle and determine all matters, questions and differences in regard there to, or otherwise arising out of, any connection with or incident pertaining to the Fair. All 4-H participants are also governed by the rules and policies of the Director of K-State Research and Extension. However, these rules and policies do not supersede decisions of the Kansas State Fair Board. Constructive concerns and appeals regarding the 4-H and 4-H/FFA divisions should be directed to the division committee chairs or Superintendents.

The rules of all breed associations, department rules, IAFE National Code of Show Ring Ethics and all applicable Kansas State Statutes are in force at the Kansas State Fair. A copy of the IAFE National Code of Show Ring Ethics can be requested at the State Fair office or by visiting the International Association of Fairs and Festivals (IAFE) website at Violation of these rules will result in penalties. When no rule appears to cover a situation, the General Manager will ask the State Fair Board to make a rule and define its application to the situation.
