We will still be selecting "State Fair" projects at the Warren County Static, Clothing, and Communications Event! See below for more details.

While safety limitations put a hold on the Iowa State Fair this year, 4-H youth across Iowa will still have plenty of opportunities to showcase learning exhibits and participate in events online.

A special exhibition, 4-H Show Iowa, will provide state level recognition to partially replace the loss of learning opportunities. Included in these virtual celebrations are 4-H Exhibits, Communication Events and the Awardrobe Clothing Selection. 🍀

Information for 4-H youth exhibitors and families can be found on the 4-H Show Iowa webpage and will continue to be updated ➡️ www.extension.iastate.edu/4h/2020-4-h-show-iowa

❗️ 2020 Iowa State Fair Announcement❗️

In the spirit of tradition, the Iowa State Fairgrounds are excited to host the 2020 Fair Special Edition: Iowa 4-H and FFA Livestock Show. Held with the same prestige and competition found at the Iowa State Fair, this 2020 Special Edition will showcase the superior showmanship, hard work, and determination of Iowa’s 4-H and Iowa FFA Association youth.

This Special Edition show will follow all Iowa Department of Public Health and CDC recommendations for social distancing, hand washing and sanitization, so although it will be held in August and on the Iowa State Fairgrounds, you may notice some “special” considerations for this stand-alone event.

The 4-H and FFA livestock shows will happen over 3 weekends in August.
▪️ August 6-8: 4-H Rabbit, 4-H Sheep, FFA Beef, FFA Horse, FFA Rabbit, FFA Sheep, Youth Dairy Cattle
▪️ August 13-15: 4-H Horse, 4-H Meat Goat, FFA Meat Goat, FFA Poultry, FFA Swine
▪️ August 20-22: 4-H Beef, 4-H Poultry, 4-H Swine, Youth Dairy Goat

Warren County 4-H Families:



The Warren County Fair Board has made the decision to postpone the 2020 Warren County Fair until July 28-August 2, 2021. Please visit their website to view their press release. With this news we understand that many of you have questions regarding 4-H/FFA livestock and exhibit building projects. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is working with the Warren County Fair to explore options for youth to exhibit their projects and will have more information to share very soon.



We understand youth and families put in countless hours preparing their projects for fair and want them to be able to display their hard work. We hope that you understand our main concern is to keep youth, families, volunteers, and staff safe.



We do not have all the answers currently, but are working hard to develop a plan to provide youth with an exhibit experience this year. When more information is available, it will be sent out via 4-H Online Email and posted to our County Website.



We appreciate your patience and cooperation!

Sammy Hasper, Warren County Youth Coordinator
