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.

Exhibits - Each club is encouraged to set up an exhibit to promote 4-H or display an educational exhibit. Members may exhibit their project work and may also have an individual educational exhibit.

Live Demos - Members offer 30-minute presentations to teach the public about a topic related to their project.

Animal Shows - Animals are housed and shown at the fair.

Food Booth - Run by 4-H leaders, parents and  members. Each club is expected to staff the booth for at least one complete five hour shift. Proceeds provide the funds for the 4-H Council to offer trip scholarships and county awards.
