New York State Fair midway


New York State Fair

  • Wednesday, August 21, 2019, 8:00 AM - Sunday, August 25@ 11:45 PM

Lewis County 4-H will have animal exhibits throughout the fair with 4-H youth building exhibits on display from August 21 through August 25.

4-H at State Fair is synonymous with fun, excitement, discussing the latest chocolate-dipped food items, and more!  Youth from around New York are invited to attend Fair as representatives of their county Cooperative Extension and 4-H offices. The 4-H Youth Building offers a dorm upstairs to accommodate youth and families attending Fair.

New York State 4-H Youth Development is fortunate to have continued support from the NYS Department of Agriculture & Markets and Cornell University for our strong presence at State Fair. Through our partnership, we are committed to an engaging experience for families. We highlight the best of 4-H, positive youth development, and New York itself through a focus on: agriculture and animal care;public presentations; renewable energy; health and fitness; robotics; teen leadership; and more.

Each county in New York has an opportunity to attend Fair and participate in events and show animals or exhibits. Counties are assigned a 4-day rotation for exhibiting in the 4-H Youth Building. The 4-H Youth Building and our many animal barns act as showcases of our youth's learning and effort to make their best better.
