The 52nd Annual Stratham Fair is Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21.

At Stratham Fair, the finished results of 4-H member and volunteer leader efforts are on display, emphasizing practical life skills through a broad variety of projects and activities through the 4-H Positive Youth Development program. These projects are displayed in the 4-H building, and the livestock barns and show rings.4-H Animal Exhibitors

Many 4-H members work on projects related to agriculture and animal husbandry. 4-H members from across New Hampshire show their animals and practice their skills, not only as they pursue ribbons and fair premiums, but also as they work to educate other fairgoers about reponsible agricultural practices.
