4-H is now Youth Fair for 2021
Please note due to Covid-19 4-H is not supporting in person activities for the 2021 Ionia Free Fair. Therefore we will have a Youth Fair instead, all shows and sales will proceed as usual just not under the umbrella of 4-H.
Our youth show is open to all youth 5-19 years of age. Involvement provides many opportunities for members to gain skills in leadership, responsibility, and civic engagement in order to be successful throughout their lifetime.
Youth classes provide a variety of experiences to learn and grow personal interests such as crafts, to community service, to entrepreneurship, to animals.
Members join clubs that interest them. They attend club meetings and club events throughout the year. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO OWN AN ANIMAL. There are many different clubs that are not involved with animals or that you can learn about animals without having one of your own. Please click here to learn more
