The Monroe County Fair features a large variety of 4-H events and shows as well as numerous open events for all ages. Animals, livestock sale, foods, clothing, crafts, tractors, horticulture, entertainment, Queen contest, Baby contest, and the Talent show are just a few of the annual Monroe County Fair highlights. Gather the family together, get Mom out of the kitchen, and head for the 2016 Monroe County Fair for a great family outing.
Its Fair Entry Time again! Each member actively enrolled in the 4-H Program will have to access the Fair Entry System and select ALL the exhibits (includes both 4-H Building AND animal projects) they are bringing to the fair. This system works hand-in-hand with 4HOnline (the web-based enrollment system).
The 4-H General Information page is a great resource for our 4-H members and their families! Learn more about Monroe County 4-H Program.
