Poultry Fair Exhibitors

4-H members in the Poultry Project will be allowed to bring only 10 breeding birds to Fair. This includes chickens, ducks, turkeys, etc. If you bring a pen, each bird in that pen is counted as one. Also, for market poultry, make sure all three birds are either in the broiler category (2.5 to under 5 lbs.) or roaster category (5 lbs. or more). If your birds are split, they will not be judged and are not eligible for sale. If you wish, you can bring multiple birds to weigh-in and pick your best three.

Fair Admission for 4-H Exhibitors

Season wristbands will be issued to all 4-H exhibitors at no cost. These wristbands include Fair admission only for all four days of the Fair, and do not include carnival rides, parking passes, or any other ticketed events. Valid Thursday, July 26 through Sunday, July 29.

Pre-Paid Ticketing for 4-H Families

The family passes must be purchased when 4-H members submit exhibit pre-entry online and will not be available for purchase at the Fair. Pre-paid passes may be picked up beginning Sunday, July 22 in the Fairgrounds 4-H office.

Volunteer for the County Fair

4-H is in need of individuals and groups of volunteers to help with our Fair events. If you are interested in serving, please call Shaylen or Jonathan at 303-730-1920 for more information.
