Jeffco 4-H fair closed to public

Public can still support 4-H through marketplace

Posted

The Jefferson County 4-H Fair is rapidly approaching! This year, in-person numbers are reduced as a result of COVID-19, and the fair (Aug. 1-9) will be closed to the public, though 4-H and FFA youth will still be able to show their animals and projects.

In past years the fair has hosted a live auction for 4-H kids to sell their project animals for meat as well as a youth market to provide an opportunity for youth in general projects to sell items related to those projects. This year, in spirit of adapting and trying new things, there will be an online, contactless opportunity for the community to support 4-H youth.

The Jeffco 4-H Marketplace went live on July 21. This online shopping center provides opportunities for donations/add-ons for animal projects, purchase of market animals and purchase of handmade artistic crafts from 4-H’ers enrolled in general projects. After the completion of market animals shows, champion animals will be added to different section of the website to highlight their accomplishments. Purchase of meat in the Marketplace will end on Aug. 9. Purchase of donations/add-ons and youth made projects will end on Aug.16. This is a great way to support your local 4-H kids with their projects, receive high quality, home raised, local meat and wonderful handmade products for you or to give as gifts. There is something for everyone!

Note: Add-ons are for animal projects only. Add-ons are a way to contribute to a youth’s project goals without purchasing the meat. Previous youth market items have included jewelry, fishing lures, soap, hand sewn or knit goods, dog collars, photography, paintings, and meat that did not sell in the auction.)
