Kentucky 4-H State Fair
The Kentucky State Fair hosts 4-H projects from across the state in Cloverville. Cloverville consists of 18 divisions where 4-H'ers can showcase their projects. In order to exhibit a 4-H project in Cloverville, 4-H'ers must first compete in their county and be selected as the grand champion in the class. These grand champions advance to the Kentucky State Fair and are exhibited in Cloverville where they are judged on the Danish System.
Kentucky 4-H believes that all youth should have opportunities for positive youth development in four guiding concepts: mastery, belonging, independence and generosity. The Kentucky State Fair 4-H events demonstrate a 4-Her’s level of mastery in project work through completion of displayed items.
4-H'ers can be involved in Cloverville in a variety of ways from exhibiting projects, conducting demonstrations, and performing talents on stage.
During the State Fair, 4-H livestock events are taking place across the fairgrounds. (See livestock rules for more information on these events.) 4-H'ers can also compete in judging events, bicycle rodeo, quiz bowls, skill-a-thons, and much more.
