4-H Members to Participate in Richland County Fair and Rodeo


The 2017-2018, thus far, has been a large success for the 199 4-H members and 131 adult volunteers in the eleven active 4-H clubs in Richland County.

4-H focuses on growing confident, capable and caring youth through science, citizenship and healthy living projects that provide hands on learning and engagement in their home and community. 4-H has come a long way since its beginning in 1902. 4-H now offers a wide variety of projects including animal science, aerospace, robotics, woodworking, entomology, shooting sports, sport fishing, babysitting, sewing, quilting, gardening, leathercraft, photography, cooking, leadership and many more. Along with the projects, 4-H members attend many events and activities that have an emphasis on citizenship, service learning and leadership. All the members in Richland County practice service learning by completing community service projects at the club and county level. Youth also attend local, regional, state and national workshops and events that aid them in learning and developing leadership skill throughout the 4-H year.

This year at the 2018 Richland County Fair and Rodeo, 4-H members will be showcasing all that they have learned and accomplished during the 4-H year, which runs from October to September. Member’s projects will be on display from Wednesday August 1st at 1:00 p.m. to the conclusion of the fair on Saturday August 4th. We invite all to check out the indoor exhibits, walk through the livestock barns and chat with 4-H members as they work the 4-H food booth.

The horse show will be on Monday, July 30th beginning at 10:00 a.m. We would like to invite all to attend the horse show and cheer on the members for all their hard work this year. We also invite all to come and watch the small animal shows including, poultry, rabbit, dog and cat, starting at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 1st. The livestock shows will begin on Thursday, August 2nd at 8:30 a.m. and continue on Friday beginning at 8:00 a.m. In addition the market livestock program will be holding their annual sale on Friday August 3rd at 5:00 p.m. at the 4-H arena. The sale will be following the 4-H award ceremony starting at 4:00 p.m. and the Animal Parade. On Saturday, August 4th the 4-H members and Alumni will be participating in an obstacle course at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome to attend these fun and entertaining events to support the Richland County 4-H members and program.
