4-H clover 4-H State Fair Encampment


4-H members selected for trips to the State Fair must have completed the 6th grade and not be more than one year beyond high school graduation.  Names of members eligible for State Fair trips will be posted in the 4-H Building.  You have 24 hours from the time of the posting to accept your trip. 

State Fair registration (livestock and general encampment) will be completed on Wednesday, August 3 from 5:30p.m.-7p.m.

4-H Livestock Encampment- August 24-28 

4-H General Encampment- September 1-3

Along with their qualifying state fair exhibit trip(s), 4-H members may participate in activities such as Share-the-Fun, demonstrations, Arts-In, or judging teams.

When articles chosen for State Fair are too large to be transported by car with other State Fair projects, it will be the responsibility of the exhibitor to arrange for the items' transportation to the State Fair.

State Fair exhibits will be taken directly from the fair on Sunday, so will need to be properly packaged and labeled.
