The Hampshire County 4-H Fair has many familiar sights and sounds. The lowing of the cows, the scent of hay, the bright, colorful ribbons, and, of course, the faces of the exhibitors, attendees, and volunteers. These sights and sounds - and experiences - are what make the fair so special. Although the fair is a one day event, it takes an entire year to plan. The Fair Committee works tirelessly all year to coordinate, troubleshooting, and fundraise to make this fair a reality. If you’re a long-time fair goer, you‘re likely familiar with these individuals. They’re the ones taking your fair entries, running the shows, selling you food, setting up the exhibit hall.
