ALACHUA CO., Fla. — The Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show Association is pleased to announce the upcoming 2022 Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show on March 3, through March 8, 2022, at the Alachua County Agriculture and Equestrian Center (23100 W. Newberry Road, Newberry). The event is free. All exhibitors and spectators are strongly encouraged to wear masks.
The Youth Fair and Livestock Show is at the new facility. The event this year will be available to view streamed live on the Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show website for those who do not feel comfortable attending in person.
The fair is an educational platform for the youth in Alachua County who are interested in agriculture. Youth will exhibit both livestock and non-livestock 4-H & FFA projects.
“The youth fair benefits agriculture and the local community by providing an educational opportunity for youth to learn about production agriculture as well as develop life skills,” said Dr. Cindy Sanders, UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County Director. “Working with livestock and other agriculture events through the youth fair prepares future citizens of Alachua County to be knowledgeable about agriculture production and land use. This benefits Alachua County by providing citizens the opportunity to see our 4-H & FFA youth projects.”
