Thu, 09/30/2021 to Sun, 10/03/2021
Deerfield Fairgrounds
34 Stage Road
Deerfield, NH 03037

The 2021 Deerfield Fair is Thursday, September 30 through Sunday, October 3, 2021. At Deerfield Fair, the finished results of 4-H member and volunteer leader efforts are on display, emphasizing practical life skills gained through a broad variety of 4-H projects and activities. These projects are displayed in the 4-H Building, livestock barns, and show rings.

Animal Exhibits: 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 responsible agricultural practices.

Building Exhibits: Exhibits in the 4-H Building at Deerfield Fair include individual and club/program displays on cooking, rocketry, shooting sports, gardening, sewing and textiles, GPS navigation, communications skills, wind power, hiking and environmental stewardship, service learning, and much more!
