Missouri State Fair

Each year, 4-H members exhibit projects at the Missouri State Fair, having qualified at a county qualifying event (non-animal exhibits qualify at Achievement Day or Contest Event; live animal exhibits plus ham and bacon qualify at the County Shows).

Members exhibiting at the Missouri State Fair must follow the rules and regulations put forth by the State Fair. 4-H Exhibits in the 4-H Building at the State Fair also need to follow the rules and regulations put forth by the Missouri 4-H State Office for 4-H Building entries.
