County Fairs (June & August)
Fairs and Expositions
Fairs provide opportunities for members to exhibit the best of their project work from the past year and see how their skills have grown. Fairs also share with the community what 4-H activities are taking place in their area. 4-H recognizes the value of participation at fairs as a means to showcase, exhibit, and otherwise demonstrate an individual member’s accomplishments and skill development. Fair participation, however, is not a requirement for 4-H involvement, nor should fairs be considered as a validation of the learning experience. Read more about 4-H rules governing participation at fairs.
