Somerset County 4-H Fair
North Branch Park
355 Milltown Rd.
DATE / TIME
Aug 07, 2019 - Aug 09, 2019
This year’s Fair Theme is: Go Anywhere with 4-H!
There are so many ways that a 4-H member can interpret this, such as; how has 4-H helped a youth DIRECT their passion; how has 4-H helped a youth FIND their path. Also how has 4-H GUIDED them to other projects/issues that could help benefit them, as well as their community, such as volunteering and fundraising. Don’t forget to look throughout the club tents to see where 4-H took them this year!
The Somerset County 4-H Fair, which is located at North Branch Park in Bridgewater, is a county tradition since 1947.
Although the Fair has grown and changed a little, some things have remained the same: there are no admission or parking fees and no midway or carnival rides. All day (10 am-10pm), free professional & amateur entertainment can be enjoyed as well.
Free shuttle buses run from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. each day of the Fair from Raritan Valley Community College Rt. 28, North Branch. We do ask that you leave your pets at home.
The Somerset County 4-H Fair recognizes the accomplishments of 1,000 Somerset County 4-H members and is a showcase for visitors to see a wide variety of 4-H projects in action. Twirling, go karts, rockets, magic, model airplanes, R.C. cars, model trains, and other 4-H clubs compete and perform. The Arts Tent, Science Tent, and Prep Tent (for the youngest 4-H’ers) are packed with exhibits, activities for visitors, demonstrations, and performances. Ten other 4-H tents house a variety of animals including dairy cows, beef, alpaca, horses, dogs, herpetology, sheep, goats, poultry, rabbits, and small animals. Most animal tents have a petting area and information about how to join 4-H.
