4-H Clover

The 2021 Warren County Fair is coming back with Luehrs’ Ideal Rides, 4-H livestock shows, the 4-H Food Building and Junior Leader Stand, an outdoor commercial vendor fair, and much more! We are very excited to bring this tradition back but in the safest way possible. Please stay home if you do not feel well or are sick. If you are coming to the fair, masks are always encouraged but not required unless you walk through the Senior Center to look at the fantastic projects that our 4-Her’s have worked hard on this year. Social distancing, handwashing, and sanitizing should be practiced at all times while at the fair. The Health Department will be on-site for those who want the COVID-19 vaccine or be tested for COVID-19.

As we start opening up, traveling, and being able to see each other’s unmasked faces, I would like to take this chance to ask that our community be mindful as we are trying to bring a fun-filled yet safe event back to the 4-Hers and our community. We can’t wait to see you at the 2021 Warren County 4-H Fair on June 15-19!  Full 4-H Fair Schedule at bottom of this page!
