Events are open to 4-H and FFA members showing livestock, unless otherwise noted. Open fair means it is open to any 4-H or FFA member, who is a member in good standing. See links below for additional information. This page will be updated when information becomes available.

Attention 4-H livestock project members of beef, dairy, goats, poultry, rabbits, sheep and swine!
