4-H Information

Our entire team is elated with the return of this proud annual event—one of America’s classic state fairs—running from August 27th through September 6th. Scores of traditional features and attractions of the Fair will be presented in the best way we know how. Still, our programming efforts were unavoidably impacted by the pandemic as planning for certain familiar aspects of the Fair required longer lead times than CDC and Oregon Health Authority safety guidelines allowed. 

If one of your favorite parts of the Fair is missing this year, please rest assured that the 2022 Oregon State Fair will see the return of numerous crowd favorites.
