Fair President's Welcome

Welcome to the 2016 Middlesex and New Haven County 4-H Fair! From the cat show to the tractor pulls, there is not a dull moment planned at our fair. One of our ultimate goals this year was to create an overall more interactive fair for not only the exhibitors but the public as well. Through livestock shows, home arts exhibits, pulls and live entertainment, together we can work to successfully achieve this goal. This year’s fair is sure to offer a wide selection for visitors, 4-H'ers and volunteers alike!

This fair would not be able to happen without all of the amazing people who took the time out of their busy lives to participate in the running of the fair. I am so incredibly grateful to all the people who put their heart and soul into making this event happen. Without the dedication of all the volunteers and parents who selflessly offer their time, it would be impossible for this fair to create the memories for all who attend. I would like to thank the 4-H members, the staff, and volunteers for all their hard work and dedication. Their efforts have created a year filled with many successes. I’m looking forward to seeing all excitement, passion, and commitment that we enjoy at the 4-H Fair! Good luck to all the exhibitors!
