County & State Fairs: 4-H Exhibit Opportunities

Boulder County Fair

County Fair is an exciting time of the year for our 4-H members because it is their chance to show off how hard they have worked all year! Fair is not required for 4-H members but is the number one choice for exhibiting a 4-H project. The public delights in seeing the various exhibits and contests, and who doesn’t enjoy some fair food? This opportunity is provided by the Boulder County Fair Board, Boulder County 4-H Extension, Boulder County Fairgrounds, and Boulder County Commissioners.
