Preparations for the 2017 Fair season are well underway.  4-H youth, parents, staff and communities are working hard towards successful and rewarding fairs full of fun and memories.  

Please go to the web sites linked below for detailed information for 4-H Youth and their families.

Fremont 4-H Expo - July 12 - 15, 2017

Dodge County Fair - August 1 - 6, 2017

Nebraska State Fair - August 25 - September 4, 2017



The purpose of the “Nebraska 150 Celebration” is to be creative in all project areas. If your exhibit represents Nebraska Heritage in any way, please label your entry tag with this special sticker. You can pick up a sticker from the Project Superintendent at the time of entry. Each labeled project will receive a special recognition certificate. The top three exhibits will receive a special award. All “Nebraska 150 Celebration” exhibits will be placed in a separate booth to commemorate the celebration.


County Fair is just right around the corner. It takes over a hundred 4-H volunteers to make the fair run smoothly whether it is in a Livestock show or on Static judging day. Each club is going to be assigned a project area on judging day. You as a 4-H family are asked to volunteer at the time it works for you in your project area. Please contact your 4-H leader or the Dodge County Extension office to reserve your time slot by July 24th. You can always volunteer to stay for two shifts as well. Remember, we can also use the help of older 4-H members to move projects back to the booths. It does take all of you and your commitment to the 4-H program. Each enrolled 4-H family is asked to take a shift!
