The Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show

Youth Fair and Livestock ShowThe Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show is March 6, through March 10, 2020, at the Alachua County Fairgrounds (3100 N.E. 39th Ave, Gainesville). 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. The event is free and open to the public.

The Alachua County Youth Fair and Livestock Show Association is a non-profit organization that conducts and operates public fairs and expositions on 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 Dr. 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 the opportunity to see our 4-H & FFA youth projects”.


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.
