It’s the time of year we’ve all been waiting for: Spring and the 4-H Cultural Arts Festival! Let’s get those performances and art pieces ready! Anyone can participate—you do not need to be enrolled in any particular project or be a 4-H member. All entries will be judged and receive a premium of $1, $2 or $3 each depending on how well they place. You must pre-register for this event!


Give us your best estimate of length of performances and your time preferences. We will do our best to honor these.

If you are doing a group project (such as a play), designate one person to send the info to us. Every year there is a poster contest for 4-H members only. This year’s theme is 4-H: A bridge to Your Future.

We hope to see YOU at the Festival this year!
