4-H Fair

Visit CCE Franklin 

at the Franklin County Fair 

August 4-13, 2017

Let this be your official invitation to stop by the Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) 4-H Youth Building as you will be in for treat and a wealth of fun.

Typically, the fair is the culminating showcase for 4H club members to have their yearlong completed projects judged and placed on exhibit. Whereas, the 4H Beef, Dairy, Dog, Goat, and Horse exhibits are housed separately from the non-animal projects, the week will feature a variety of days for the animal projects to be judged and released. Non-animal projects are judged prior to the opening of the fair and placed in their club exhibit in the CCE 4H Youth Building for the week.
