4-H at Cheshire Fair


Fair time is an opportunity to showcase and promote the achievements and talents of 4-H youth as they work toward building their future.  There are many ways members can be involved at the fair this year, even with the absence of 4-H animal shows.

Exhibits - Different from previous years, there will be no individual exhibits. Clubs and families are encouraged to set up an exhibit in the 4-H Exhibit Hall in one of the two themes: 4-H is Resilient or Educational. See the attached flyer for more guidelines and the scoring rubric. To enter this contest, and request space, sign up with 4-HOnline.

  • The date to set up and take down exhibits will be annouced at a later time.

Stall Contest - Youth animal exhibitors, who are also involved with the 4-H program can enter the stall decorating contest in one of the two themes: 4-H Proud or Educational. This is similar to the Herdsmanship contest held in previous years. See the attached flyer for more guidelines and the scoring rubric. To enter this contest, sign up with 4-HOnline.

Food Booth - The Food Booth will be operating this year a little differently, due to COVID-19. The tentative hours are from 7:00am-7:00pm with three, 4 hour shifts throughout the day,  and a reduced menu. Rather than a whole club committing to a shift, we are looking for a minimum of 5 volunteers/ older 4-H members to operate the essential parts of the food booth (cash register/ taking orders, prep work, grill, drinks, sending orders), and additional 1-2 younger youth to assist with smaller tasks. If you are interested in volunteering in the food booth, take this survey.
