The 4-H Display Barn will house all still projects! Clubs will have a booth in this building and all projects will go in your booth. Gardening/Crops entries should be brought to the 4-H Display Barn during setup times and will be displayed together in a central location in the AGmazing AgriCenter (Ed Sands Building). Please check with the 4-H Display Barn staff present at setup to complete an exhibit card.
If your club is not requesting a booth, there will be a special area in the 4-H Display Barn for your member’s projects to be displayed. A reminder that in order for a member to receive a premium for their project, it MUST BE DISPLAYED the entire week of the fair!
We do not have a 4-H theme for 2019. Clubs should decorate their booth using the theme of their choice. Please note, no straw is permitted in the displays including bales). The use of feathers of any kind are prohibited for any type of display at the Fairfield County Fair. To view a booth score rubric, see the Club Advisors Resources on our website!
To request a booth, one advisor from your club should fill out the 2019 BOOTH REQUEST and VOLUNTEER SHEET from the August newsletter and turn in by Friday, September 6th. Please list how many projects your club has and specify the size of the items. There is a formula used to give clubs a fair/equal amount of space for each project.
Continuing in 2019: With the update of panels for booths that are not against the wall, these booths will be on 4 foot increments (4×4 ft, 4×8 ft, 4×12 ft, etc.). The outside wall booth sizes will be the same as before.
Display Barn Setup is 1:00 – 7:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday, October 4th and 5th (NO SUNDAY SETUP!).
Display Barn Tear Down is Sunday, October 13th, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. No booths or projects may be removed prior to this time!
Display Barn Guards: To help cut down on vandalism or theft in the barns, all clubs with booths in the 4-H Display Barn are REQUIRED to sign up for at least one – 2 hour period to guard and keep an eye on displays in the 4-H Display Barn. During your club shift(s), we ask that you have at least two people per club – one adult and one person age 16 or older. They can be parents, advisors, or older 4-H members. The guards watch the area and answer visitors’ questions.
Fill out the sign-up form with the days and times your club would like to take a shift. If you know the names of those who will be representing your club during those days and times, please also include their names. Please list all the days and times you are able to help. (Note: You will not be placed in every time you list—that will just assist in the process of acquiring volunteers!) Return this form to the OSU Extension Office.
