Arts & Sciences Fair and Pentathlon entrants must check in with the Entries Team before setting up their displays.

Team Leaders are responsible for checking in for their team.
Entrant Setup Information
Arts & Sciences Fair and Pentathlon entrants have a total of 1.5 hours to set up their displays for judging. Two set-up blocks are available – one on Friday evening and one on Saturday morning. There is no benefit to choosing one set-up block over another – entrants should choose the most convenient time.
Individual entrants are allowed one helper to assist with set up. Both the entrant and helper must be in garb, with a site token in hand before checking in and setting up. Team Leaders should coordinate their team’s entries to be set up during these times. All team members must be in garb, with a site token in hand, and use the same set-up block.
Culinary items (brewing and food entries) are not allowed in the judging area overnight. Entrants using Set up Block 1 will be able to set up the static portion of their entry Friday evening and then have up to 15 minutes Saturday morning to drop off the food or beverage portion. The 1.5 hour set up time limit still applies.
Display and People’s Choice Competition
Arts & Sciences Fair and Pentathlon entries (excluding culinary, brewing, and performance entries) will be on display for the populace Sunday morning and be eligible for the People’s Choice Competition.
