The Clark County 4-H Fair provides an opportunity for 4-H'ers to showcase their projects that they have made or animals they have worked with during the past year. The 4-H Fair is a family-friendly environment and the favorite activity of the year for many of our 4-H'ers.

The 2018 4-H Fair will be held July 21 - 25, 2018 at the Martinsville Fairgrounds.
