4-H Fair is a free, annual county-wide event. Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers that make this event possible!

The Kings County 4-H Fair is an event that gives 4-H members the opportunity to exhibit the projects that they have worked on over the past year.  It is also a chance for members to explore other 4-H projects and hang out with friends. 4-H Fair charges no entry fees, so come on down and practice your skills.

The event is open to all active Kings County 4-H members; there is an opportunity for all projects to be exhibited in some way. More information about the categories can be found in the 4-H Fair Book below.

Interested in being a volunteer?

This year's Kings County 4-H All-Star and Ambassador have created a Kids Kamp that will run from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Saturday April 27th at the 4-H Fair to give younger children a place to hang out, do crafts, play games, and have fun while older youth show their livestock exhibits. 

We are looking for youth volunteers to help supervise the area in three time slots, if you are interested please fill out this survey: Kids Kamp Interest Survey

 

Release of Livestock Exhibits

The scheduled release time for livestock exhibits will be after the awards ceremony on Saturday.  Any exhibitor that takes their animal out of the fairgrounds before the release time will be fined $25.00 per animal in violation of this policy.  The fine will be due and payable immediately upon exiting the fairgrounds.

Pen/Stall Clean Out

Due to the rising cost of removal of soiled bedding materials from the 4-H Fair, only shavings (no straw) are to be used under any animals being shown during the 4-H Fair. Any member electing to use any other type of bedding material must completely remove all bedding from the fairgrounds prior to leaving the 4-H Fair or be subject to monetary penalties. Only shavings will be allowed to be dumped in the disposal area. There will be a $10 per head fee charged for any pens not cleaned by the end of the fair.
