Kent County Youth Fair Details

Each year, the Kent County Youth Fair provides an exciting summer fun opportunity to nearly 1,000 exhibitors and more than 40,000 patrons!

Our exhibitors compete in a variety of events that enhance their presentation skills, demonstrate their dedication to farming, and showcase their talent.

They learn valuable skills such as responsibility, a good work ethic, and leadership. Not only during the fair week but also in preparing their exhibits beforehand, exhibitors at the Kent County Youth Fair work diligently to provide a quality project.

During the fair, their hard work is rewarded with excitement and pride on a job well done!

Visitors enjoy a wealth of entertainment while visiting the fair.

While visiting the Fair, children (and adults) learn about livestock they may have only read about before! With hands-on experiences to enjoy, the Kent County Youth Fair provides valuable agricultural exposure to those who might otherwise never be personally associated with farming and raising livestock. And the best thing is, it’s all so much fun! 

Along with agricultural education, the fair offers a wide variety of FREE family entertainment all week long!

Whether you’re catching a show or taking a walk through the barns, you’ll enjoy every minute of your visit to fair!
