Greetings! This year’s Madison County Fair is scheduled for August 26-28, 2010. Cooperative Extension in Madison County works with the fair board to provide opportunities for youth during this event. There are a number of exhibit categories in which youth may enter and earn premiums. Additionally, there will be beef heifer, poultry, wool breed sheep, dairy goat, market lamb and horse shows. All shows are OPEN but follow 4-H rules and regulations (meaning you do NOT have to be a 4-H member to participate). Youth may earn premiums by participating in the livestock and horse shows also (premiums vary by show, please refer to the fair book for specifics). Completed entry forms are due August 16th. To request a Madison County Fair Book, please call 828.649.2411.
