Fulton County 4-H Fair
The Fulton County 4-H Fair will be a live, in-person exhibit, though attendance at the 4-H exhibit will primarily be only 4-H families and volunteers.
All 4-Hers, 4-H volunteers and staff MUST wear face coverings when engaged in 4-H activities at fair events. Youth are highly encouraged to practice working with their animals with a face covering on prior to fair. There will be a face covering competition via Facebook with a family prize and individual prize. A generous supply of cloth face coverings has been donated to us by the Gary Sinise Foundation.
• Social distancing will be required. Limits will be placed on the number of individuals within buildings/viewing events. For example, there will either be no seating or limited seating at livestock shows which will be reserved for parents of youth currently in the livestock arena. Once your child has shown and has exited the ring we strongly encourage you to step away so other parents may watch their child while still being able to maintain that social distancing of 6 ft.
• The Commercial Building will not be open. No vendors this year.
• Special events like the livestock rodeo, demo, pig rodeo, and tractor pull have been cancelled
• The queen contest is still on, however the contest will be open only for participant’s families.
• Adult Open Class has postponed all entries until 2021.
• If you are interested in the Queen Contest, you may go to their Facebook page—Miss Fulton County, Indiana.
The Purdue Extension Fulton County staff appreciates the cooperation of the Fulton County Fair Board and 4-H Council in making an in-person exhibit possible. While not everyone may agree with the decisions, let’s celebrate the fact that these 4-H youth can at least participate via in-person competition to share and learn. Every year, 4-H builds life skills providing challenges to overcome and achieve. This year has been an excellent opportunity to teach youth to persevere in tough times.
