One of the most iconic attractions at The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is the Butter Sculpture Competition. This year – and for the first time in The Fair’s history – the contest will be open to all Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast with our at-home Virtual Butter Sculpture Competition.
Anyone (kids and adults alike!) is welcome to create a miniature butter sculpture from one pound of butter. Once your sculpture is complete (and photo ready!) – snap a pic and share on Instagram using #ButterSculptureChallenge and tagging @theroyalfair to enter the contest and have a chance to be crowned a Royal Champion.
Not on social media?
Feel free to email your masterpiece by clicking the Enter Now button on royalfair.org/butter. There are two categories: one for kids 12 and under, and one for everyone else.
Entries close November 4 at 11:59 EST, after which The Royal and a panel of esteemed experts (including our 2020 Royal Ambassador, Duke the Silkie Frizzle Rooster!) will select a group of finalists in each category, who will be announced on November 10. From there, it’ll be up to Canadians to decide, voting online for their favourite – with a winner crowned a Royal Champion in each category, receiving a Royal prize package valued at $150 CAD.
