Audubon County 4H & Youth

Local Highlights

June 30, 2020

For several weeks, the Audubon County Fair Board, ISU Extension and Outreach Audubon County, and our local FFA chapter advisers have been working hard with one goal in mind: how to host a safe county fair amid the uncertainties and regulations put in place due to Covid- 19.This year, Audubon County Fairboard has decided to postpone the typical Audubon County Fair until July 14-18, 2021. Due to the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and the extensive precautions to ensure the health and safety of fair-goers, volunteers, and exhibitors, we feel we are unable to host our typical fair.We value our youth and all the hard work they have put in with their animals and static projects this year. Therefore, we will be hosting a 4-H/FFA livestock show in a modified format with specific guidelines in place.
