Mark Your Calendar… 4-H Foundation Announces Dates for Annual 4-H Fair


Mark your calendar for the 2019 Cape May County 4-H Fair. The Cape May County 4-H Foundation, Inc. announces that the fair will take place on July 18, 19 and 20 at the 4-H Fairgrounds located at 355 Court House-South Dennis Road in Cape May Court House, New Jersey. Admission is free!

4-H Foundation volunteers donate their experience, energy and time to create the annual 4-H Fair. Board members have been meeting all spring to discuss changes and new events coming to the fair this July. 4-H Fair attendees can look forward to exciting entertainment, a variety of activities for young and old alike, diverse food vendors, and educational and fun exhibits.

Returning entertainment includes Cowboy Larry and Brave Beth complete with trick roping, bullwhips, and trick shooting. Plus Cowboy Larry will stroll the fairgrounds entertaining and making young visitors deputy sheriffs. Jet Weston and the Atomic Ranch Hands, authentic singing cowboys, will perform on the main stage with a dynamic, costumed 7-piece band.

Events include a pet show – open to all, livestock and horse shows, a market animal auction, bouncy houses, and a maker space that combines elements of innovation, do-it-yourself skills, crafts and technology. Also, young fairgoers will enjoy the Life of the Farm children’s area full of fun sensory activities. Thanks to the work of the Rutgers Master Gardeners, the Irma McVey Memorial Herb Garden will be open for touch, taste and smell tours and there will be a number of “How To” Tent Talks taking place on Saturday of the fair.
