Fair Pass Distribution for 2020 Junior Fair

The Clermont County Agricultural Society is hosting a modified Junior Fair this year.  In an effort to limit crowd sizes, events will not be open to the general public for admission. Anyone attending the Clermont County Junior Fair this year will need to wear a wristband (no paper passes this year).  Each livestock exhibitor will be issued a band and their immediate family will be given four bands. For example, a family with two livestock exhibitors will be issued six total bands. Those participating in general project judging be given two bands. One for themselves and one for a family member bringing them to project judging. Cloverbuds are not considered exhibitors and would use one of the family’s four bands. If your family needs more than four bands for immediate family members who are not exhibitors, please send an email to pkirk6423@gmail.com and explain your situation and how many extra bands you are requesting. Requests will be approved on a case-by-case basis.

Livestock exhibitors, 4-H advisors and county breeders can pick up their bands at the Junior Fairboard office on Friday, July 24th from 5-9:00pm. General Project exhibitors can pick up their bands in the Senior Fairboard office on Friday, July 24th from 5:00-9:00pm. Wristbands must be picked up by a family representative. That person will be required to sign for the bands. Wristbands will NOT be distributed to your 4-H advisors to hand out.

The representative signing for the bands is responsible for the distribution of those bands. Wrist bands must be visible the entire week and should not be shared with other individuals. Exhibitors and spectators will not be permitted onto the fairgrounds without a wristband.

4-H Outpost Sign-Up

Sign up to work a shift in the 4-H Outpost during the Clermont County Fair!  This is the only fundraiser sponsored by the Clermont County 4-H Committee, to support the 4-H program.  It takes hundreds of youth, parents and volunteers to help make the Outpost run smoothly all week!

The funds raised from the Outpost are used to support state camp and trip scholarships, project awards and 4-H programming.  Every 4-H club is asked to work one shift in the Outpost.  Shifts will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Each club must have a minimum of 8 youth working per shift. Youth should be at least 12 years of age, no one under the age of 18 is permitted to work at the grill.  A club volunteer or parent is required to be present throughout the shift.  Only one club is able to work per shift.  When signing up, please use the first and last name of the volunteer overseeing the shift and put the club name in the comments.  As a reminder, working a shift in the 4-H Outpost is a requirement for any club striving to become an Honor Club.
