The Montgomery County 4-H Fair
The Montgomery County 4-H Fair is held every year at the Montgomery County 4-H Center the 2nd week in August on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The 4-H Center is located at 1015 Bridge Road, Creamery PA 19426
The Fair dates for 2013 are August 8, 4:00PM to 9:00PM, August 9, 9:30AM to 9:00PM, and August 10, 9:30AM to 4:00PM.
The 4-H Fair is the culmination of the 4-H project year for Montgomery County 4-H members. This is their opportunity to show their families, friends and the public their achievements throughout the year. Our livestock and animal science 4-H members have their animals on display and proudly show them and answer questions. Other 4-H clubs also have their projects on display and are also on hand to promote 4-H and their clubs. A giant Fabric Sale is ongoing throughout the fair and is coordinated by the Creamery Crafters 4-H club.
In addition to the 4-H projects, there are demonstrations, contests, games, music, an Open Baking Contest (with a theme!), an Open Pet Show and of course - all sorts of delicious food - including the World's Largest Sausage Patty! Past demonstrations have included the Graterford Mounted Patrol, Canine Agility, Parade of Horse Breeds, and the 4-H Equine Drill Team to name a few. The Daisy Jug Band, a SE PA favorite, performs on Friday evening. New this year is Jeremiah James, Thursday evening at 8PM.
The public is also encouraged to enter their projects into the Open Classes categories. You DO NOT need to be a Montgomery Co. resident! This is a great opportunity to show off your talents! There are classes for all types of gardening, sewing, cooking, crafts, art, photography and more! The Open Classes are for all ages.
