The Olympia Camera Club sponsors the Open Class Photography Exhibit at the Thurston County Fair each year in late July, early August.  All members are encouraged to submit their images to this fun competition.

Because of Covid-19, there’s no guarantee the fair will go on this year, but if we fail to prepare now and there is a fair, we’d be hard pressed to pull off the Photography Exhibit at the last minute.  With that in mind, we’ve begun the process of submitting our exhibitor’s guide and entry forms, and now we just need to start lining up volunteers to set up our exhibit before the fair and to man the information table during the fair.  

Volunteers Needed

We’ve created online sign-up forms that members can add their names for the slots they’d like to volunteer for.  If you’re interested in volunteering for the fair, please log in and look in the MEMBERS ONLY MENU for a link to the sign-up pages.
