Animals entered in livestock categories for the 2017 Fauquier County Fair, which will begin Wednesday, July 12.

That represents an increase of 15 percent from 2016, according to board member Patty Leonard. Last year’s fair had 292 livestock entries.

Fifty-six people met this year’s June 30 deadline to register for pageants and other contests at the annual fair.

Building exhibitors may register photography, quilts, produce, baked goods, crafts, art and other items from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday and 9 to 11 a.m. Monday.

The event will run through Saturday, July 15, at the fairgrounds on Old Auburn Road east of Warrenton.
