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 2014 are August 7, 4:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., August 8, 9:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and August 9, 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
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.
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.
