SPECIAL CONTESTS

DAIRY WOMEN CONTEST
Calling all dessert creators! The Tillamook County Dairy Women are asking you to submit your best dairy dessert to the 2021 Tillamook County Fair. We are looking for the best dairy-licious dessert. The only rule for the contest is your recipe must contain AT LEAST 3 dairy products! So, let the mixing bowls and measuring cups fly and get out the butter, milk, whipping cream, cheeses, and sour cream. Remember a dairy product is something made with milk from a cow (eggs are from chickens!).

Submit a typed copy of your recipe along with the finished product to the Tillamook County Fair Culinary Dept. by Tuesday, August 9th at 10:00 am (if you do not have your recipe typed, you will be disqualified). Desserts will be judged by a committee consisting of Tillamook Fair Culinary Judges and Tillamook County Dairy Women Representatives and judged on taste, appearance and use of dairy products. For further questions please e-mail: tillamookfair@tillamookfair.com. All recipes will become the property of the Tillamook County Dairy Women who reserve the right to publish them in future cookbooks and other publications.
