Welcome to the Phillips County Fair
Believe it or not, county Fair is right around the corner! While it seems like just yesterday 4-H members were selecting and re-enrolling in their 4-H projects, the time has now come for them to showcase everything they have been working so diligently on.
The Phillips County Fair runs June 23-27. During these busy Fair days, the general public will have the opportunity to take a firsthand look at various 4-H projects and also visit with 4-H members about what they have learned by participating in 4-H.
The Fair really gets started for 4-H members on July 22 with interview judging. Members who have taken general 4-H projects (no livestock) will have a 10 minute interview with a judge. The judge will examine the completed project and record book and will have the opportunity to ask project-related questions to the 4-H member. After all interviews are completed, the judge will then select unit champions and grand and reserve grand champions.
Wednesday, July 23, kicks off with the 4-H horse show and tiny tot horse show. All livestock members will need to have their animals in place by that evening. Market livestock weigh-in runs from 5-8 p.m.
Thursday, July 24, is the first day of livestock judging. Rabbit and poultry judging begins at 1 p.m., while the goat show begins at 4 p.m. The market hog show will begin immediately following the goat show.
Friday, July 25, is a busy day for 4-H members! The day begins bright and early with the 4-H and FFA exhibitor breakfast sponsored by the Phillips County Farm Bureau.
