4-H The Heart of the Fair!

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 anmials 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 270 areas, ranging from woodworking and baking to sewing, photography and cake decorating.

See 4-H youth tending to their rabbits, goats, sheep, poultry and cattle.
Enjoy the many daily 4-H competitions, including livestock shows and more in the Livestock Pavilion.

Show your support on Saturday, July 25 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 animals.
