The Waukesha County Fair is where the 4-H youth display their projects and animals. The Waukesha County Fair takes place the third week in July.
4-H is a huge part of the Waukesha County Fair and showing at the Waukesha County Fair is a huge part of 4-H, however, they are separate organizations. (Please don’t be offended if the 4-H office tells you to call the Fair office or vice versa – we don’t know everything about the Fair and they don’t know everything about 4-H.)
As you may have already noticed, 4-H has a bit of a language all it’s own and unfortunately, so does the Fair. So before we go any farther, we’ll define some of the common words/phrases….
You’ve made the commitment to 4-H and it’s time to add the Fair piece to your 4-H experience.
Once you have determined what projects you plan to enter at Fair, it is time to actually make your projects and get them ready for Fair!
