4-H Fair, August 8, 9, & 10, 2019
The 70th Atlantic County 4-H Fair kicks off Thursday, August 8 and runs through Saturday, August 10 at the David C. Wood 4-H Center & Fairgrounds on Route 50 in Mays Landing. The 4-H Fair is a celebration of the accomplishments of our 4-H members who have worked throughout the year learning more about their 4-H project and themselves through their club and other 4-H educational experiences.
Visitors can see for themselves the original “maker movement” – hands-on, learn-by-doing that has been the 4-H slogan since 1902 and part of the 4-H creed, “I believe in the training of my HANDS for the ability it will give me to be helpful, skillful, and useful.”
The public is invited to enjoy the 4-H projects and demonstrations during the upcoming Atlantic County 4-H Fair, August 8 -10, that highlight the variety of “maker” activities they engage in all year round. Projects in the main building include all the “traditional” 4-H projects like baking, preserving, arts & crafts, and fine arts but also robotics, STEM, and model railroad – all very much a part of the maker movement. Throughout the fairgrounds, examples are found in the small engines, composting, and other projects.
The Fair still brings the feeling of an “old-time country fair,” which is now a new experience for many as our county has fewer rural areas. They can see and interact with animals, watch shows, demonstrations, and musical acts, and look forward to the amusement rides. They can take part in Saturday’s public events – the Baby Parade, Tractor Pull, and Pet Parade – and each of the three days of Fair talk to members and volunteers. There is something for everyone!
Admission is FREE but there is a $4 parking fee. For more information contact the 4-H Office at 609-625-0056 before the Fair or 609-965-1677 during the Fair.
