The Morris County 4-H Fair brings new life to the old-time country fairs!  It provides wholesome family fun for the community with a wide array of exhibits, club displays, animals, food, hayrides, pony rides, amusement rides, and entertainment for all ages.  The Fair is a great opportunity for your child to showcase their work and achievements.

Non-4-H members are welcome to submit their school projects for judging at the Fair.  Projects can range from Environmental Science to Horticulture to Arts & Crafts to Photography to Animals and more! Entrants must live in Morris County, have completed Kindergarten, and be no more than one year past high school. The Fair takes place on July 20-24 at Chubb Park in Chester, NJ.
