2020 County Fairs

COVID-19 Update, 4/23/2020

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, Rutgers University announced restrictions to in-person courses and activities over the summer months. In line with this directive, NJ 4-H Fairs organized by or under the auspices of Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE) are suspended through at least August 31, 2020. The Department of 4-H Youth Development is currently exploring other opportunities to showcase the achievements of 4-H members. More information will be shared by county 4-H staff in the coming weeks.

Please note this program suspension does not effect county fairs organized by entities other than RCE. While there will not be a 4-H presence at these events, the coordinating organization will determine the operational status of their fair. For information on the operational status of specific fairs, refer to the corresponding official county fair website.
