South St. Louis County Fair Cancellation


The South St. Louis County fair board has made difficult decision to cancel the 2020 SSL County Fair due to the COVID-19 health pandemic.

4-H supports this decision and is committed to offering an alternative for SSL County youth to showcase their learning and achievements. So keep working on your projects, ID your animals and continue working with them too. In partnership with the fair board, we will find a way to celebrate your effort and ensure a pathway to state events.

We have a variety of new learning experiences available for youth to explore.4-H is open and actively working to discover and encourage the sparks within our youth. Stay connected. Stay strong. Stay 4-H!
