Kalamazoo County Youth Fair 4-H Participant Info

Kalamazoo County Youth Fair

We are hard at work planning the 2023 Kalamazoo County Youth Fair. We will once again focus on an outstanding event that will highlight the 4-H programs and youth education, while also providing agricultural education to children and families in our community. 4-H livestock and horse shows along with additional 4-H activities will take place starting Tuesday, August 8, with the 4-H livestock auction on Friday afternoon. The fair will culminate in a family festival for the public on Saturday, August 12 that will offer fun entertainment and activities, plus hands-on demonstrations and educational activities for the community. 2023 is going to be a great Kalamazoo County Youth Fair & Family Festival!
