Arapahoe County’s 4-H program, which teaches youth

hands-on learning and life skills, has long been the

‘heart’ of the Arapahoe County Fair. Local youth spend

months preparing projects and animals for the Fair, where they contend for the judges’ nod, prize ribbons and cash premiums.


Discover the terrific handiwork of 4-H home economic and general projects in up to 270 areas, ranging from woodworking and baking to sewing, photography and cake decorating.


See 4-H youth tending to their rabbits, goats, sheep, poultry, cattle and horses.


Enjoy the many daily 4-H competitions, including livestock and horse shows in the Livestock Show Tent, a Fashion Revue, a Gymkhana and more.


Show your support on Saturday, July 28 at the Junior Livestock Auction where 4-H youth will sell quality market animals. Proceeds go to

individual members to support their education and to recoup the cost of raising the animal.
