4-H Youth 

Cumberland County youth ages 9-18 are encouraged to enter their 4-H projects in the Cumberland County Fair.  Age is based on the youth's age as of January 1 of the calendar year of the Fair.  Cloverbud youth (ages 5-8) may display their exhibits also during the County Fair.  For non-animal based projects, the Cumberland County Fair is the qualifying event for a youth to advance to the Kentucky State Fair.

County and State Fair Exhibit Rules 

These rules are updated annually and will be followed in determining class champions that will advance to the State Fair.  It is the youth's responsibility to prepare the exhibits according to the guidelines.  Contact the Extension Office for specific category questions at (270) 433-7700.

The following State Fair divisions will be accepted for local entries. All Kentucky State Fair General Rules apply. For a complete list of categories in each division as well as guidelines and rules, visit:
