Local 4-H Youth Ready to Exhibit their Knowledge and Skills at Knox County Fair

Local 4-H participants “learn by doing,” and the fair is their opportunity to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they have gained throughout their time in 4-H as they display their projects.

4-H youth who raise beef, swine, sheep, goats, dairy, and poultry for their annual projects can showcase them at the livestock show.

Unless otherwise noted, most events will occur at the Knox County Fairgrounds, located at 1392 Knox Highway 9 in Knoxville.
