"Going to the fair" has been an American institution for over 150 years. County fairs bring us together. For the participants, it is a gallery of opportunity divided into spaces showcasing animals, arts & crafts, horticulture, entertainment, and competition. First timers and grand champions compete side by side for ribbons and the chance to become the "best of show." For fair goers strolling along the midway or inside exhibit halls, the fair can be an extravagant exhibition of food, folks, animals, entertainment, and fun.

The Atlantic County 4-H Fair has been keeping that tradition alive since 1948. Every summer at the beginning of August the Fairgrounds in Egg Harbor City comes alive with kids, livestock, carnival rides and contests. For three days, August 10, 11, AND 12, the 4-H Fair invites you to enjoy their “tradition.”

On display you will find homemade clothing projects and preserves, garden produce and fine art, along with woodworking projects, photography, and model railroad displays. 4-H members will still be showing the county’s best horses, hogs, sheep, goats, rabbits and poultry and dogs. But you’ll also find Tae Kwon Do demonstrations, robotics, and STEM activities, as well as nightly baton twirling and other entertainment acts. The Youth Representative Contest will feature outstanding 4-H’ers public speaking and leadership skills and the Talent Show will highlight the most talented individuals in the program. Even pre-schoolers will have fun in the Baby Parade, Teddy Bear Tea, and Crafts for Kids activities.
