Many of Grafton's county-wide 4-H events are designed to showcase the project work going on at the club level. At these events, youth received written comments from knowledgeable adult volunteers, which provide feedback for improving in the future.
This year's planned events are:
- Food Show - Each year's event is slightly different. However, this event often includes place settings, food art, slow cooker, people's choice, and team cook-off contests.
- County Activities Day - Contests for this communications event are based on those offered at the State Activities Day event later in the year. Categories usually include photography, poster, action exhibit, demonstration, public speaking, and video contests.
- Fashion Revue and Textile Event - This event includes garment, knitting, crocheting, sewn items, quilt, people's choice, and fashion selections contests.
- North Haverhill Fair - This event includes sheep, beef cattle, goats, dairy cattle, working steer, dogs, and exhibit hall contests.
Additional county events are planned as learn-by-doing activities to enhance the 4-H experience.
This year's event include:
- Kids to Kids - This event is an intergenerational community service project workday co-hosted by the Grafton County Nursing Home.
- Garden Party - This event includes learning stations revolving around soil, seeds, insects, produce, and flowers.
- Arts and Crafts Jamboree and Holiday Make N' Take - These two events include stations for creating craft projects to take home.
- 4-H Family Fall Festival - This event combines end-of-the-year award presentations with seasonal contests, crafts, festival games, and a kick-off to the beginning of the new 4-H year.
