Farm Animals

Livestock exhibits are here to see throughout the Fair, beginning on Friday night of Fair weekend. The Home Arts exhibit area will be closed for much of Friday night while the judging of exhibits goes on, but will be open all day Saturday and Sunday. You can view the live judging of poultry showmanship beginning at 6:00 PM in the Cow Palace on Friday. Many more animal shows occur on Saturday and Sunday. Parking is available inside the fairgounds at Durham, at the top of the hill. This county 4-H Fair is one of the easiest agricultural fairs of the season to push a baby stroller around because the exhibit barns have smooth concrete floors and the Fair is not over-crowded. Your children will be able to see all the same kinds of animals they would see at a major fair: from rabbits to llamas to cows, and more.
