The Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show Association is pleased to announce the upcoming Alachua County Youth Fair & Livestock Show.

Youth Fair & Livestock Show – March 4-8, at the Alachua County Fairgrounds

The Alachua County Youth Fair & Livestock Show Association is a non-profit organization that conducts and operates public fairs and expositions pertaining to agricultural matters and more particularly to the exhibitions of livestock, poultry, crafts, youth projects and farm products. 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,” said 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,” Sanders said. “This benefits Alachua County by providing citizens who are familiar with a large part of the county’s economy.”

A complete schedule of events can be found at the UF/IFAS Extension Alachua County website http://alachua.ifas.ufl.edu.

Alachua County 4-H and FFA youth ranging in age from 8 to 18 can participate in the Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show. Come out and support our 4-H & FFA youth.
