Salem Days Baby Contest wants to create a positive experience for both parents and baby.  This heartwarming event is a fun way for parents to share their child’s unique personality and beauty. We encourage resident babies and babies with resident grandparents to attend this fun event.


Babies from Newborn to 36 months can enter the contest. There will be a girl and boy winner in each age category.(see below for age category)



Our judges this year will all be from out of town.  The judging system will be a numeric system that gives a numeric value in four categories:

A)  Babies Physical Features
B)  Babies Personalities and Behavior
C)  Babies Reaction to Judges
D)  Babies Attire and Overall Look

4:00-6:00pm (no entries after 6:00pm). All walk-ins are welcome.
If a baby is in line at the time of closing, they will be able to be judged. NO EXCEPTIONS and NO REFUNDS will be given.


Each participant will receive a portrait for participating. The Baby Contest Winners will be announced on Friday, August 11, 2023 after the Children’s Parade at the Downtown Ball Park at 60 North 100 East. We will be hosting a raffle with a surprise grand prize that you won't want to miss.

Pictures will be available for pick up at that time. If you are not able to attend the announcement of winners, you may pick your baby's photo up at the Salem Rec. Office?
