Animals & 4-H Overview
The Marion County Fair is unique in comparison to most county fairs as it is home to a very urban environment. Quite frankly, there aren’t many farms in Marion County, nor land available to house animals. This is why you won’t typically find 4-H kids showing their cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, etc. on-site throughout our fair. What we do offer is a series of 4-H & Open Class Animal Shows that bring in animals for specific events and on specific days of the fair. Details regarding these shows can be found below.
While there may not be much farmland in Marion County, there are plenty of Marion County 4-H students who chose to showcase their non-animal related projects. Displays can be found in categories such as art, robotics, fashion, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), photography and more!
