4-H'ers do awesome stuff!
Come and see at the State Fair 4-H Exhibits Building where we showcase what we've learned. Check out our exhibits, from building rockets to woodworking and lots in between. Attend a fashion show, listen to a speech, or watch a musical performance. Participate in hands-on activites where you may learn something and have fun, too!
