WEST CHESTER, Pa. — Driving along Route 322 in Honey Brook, PA, one cannot miss the hustle and bustle surrounding the Romano 4-H Center during 4-H Fair week! Summer in Chester County reaches its pinnacle with the Chester County 4-H Fair, and there will be a buzz as county youth proudly display the multitude of projects they have diligently prepared throughout the year. 4-H members demonstrate their skill in the handling and care of farm animals including beef cattle, dairy cows, breeding sheep, and market lambs, swine, goats, and horses during the numerous animal shows. A livestock sale of beef, sheep, goats, and swine highlight the animal events on Wednesday, August 10th, starting at 6:00 p.m. Fair week wraps up with the 4-H Horse Show on Saturday, August 13th.
In addition to the live animal shows, 4-H youth will display various projects including arts, crafts, woodworking, sewing, robotics, pet care, photography, citizenship/leadership, foods and nutrition, wildlife, vegetables and plants, and many other general exhibits. The tabletop exhibits open Monday, August 8th, after 4:00 p.m. and will remain on display throughout the week. The public is encouraged to visit and see these or any of the live animal shows.
4-H is a national youth development program for children ages 5 to 18 years of age. Clubs meet at local homes, schools, churches, or community centers and are guided by experienced adult volunteers using educational projects designed especially for 4-H clubs. The Head, Heart, Hands and Health of 4-H realize the involvement of more than 2,500 young people in this Chester County youth leadership program.
