4-H at the County Fair
Oldham County 4-H Fair
Don’t wait until the last minute to finish those 4-H fair projects! The 2017 Oldham County Fair is August 1 through 5. 4-H fair registration forms are due to the office by July 5. Early registration allows staff time to print entry tags for easy distribution on entry day. Projects will need to be delivered to the extension office between 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 27. Projects will be judged July 28, and entries will be transported by 4-H staff and volunteers to the fairgrounds on Monday, July 31. Judging early will enable us to meet the State Fair registration deadline.
The Oldham County 4-H Fair catalog is now available online at oldham.ca.uky.edu/4h-fair. A printed version of the catalog is also available at the Oldham County Cooperative Extension Office. All 4-H projects will need to be picked up on Sunday, August 6, between noon and 2:00 p.m. at the Oldham County Fairgrounds.
