Cape May Court House – Come be a part of the 4-H Fair! After breaking attendance records last year, the Cape May County 4-H Fair will be back on July 20, 21, and 22nd and you can be part of the excitement as a vendor at the fair.
The Cape May County 4-H Foundation is busy planning for the 2023 4-H Fair scheduled for July 20, 21 and 22. This year the theme is Celebrating the Red, White, Blue. Lisa McVey, 4-H Fair Chair, said, “The 4-H Fair Committee is looking forward to showing our patriotic 4-H spirit this year, so expect to see a lot of red, white, and blue along with 4-H green as you experience all the traditional fun, fair activities that you expect to see at the Cape May County 4-H Fair.”
We welcome past vendors to return and encourage new vendors to join us in making the 2023 4-H Fair the best ever. Applications are available for exhibit space for commercial and food concessions (including food trucks), non-profits, and educational displays. “We are seeking vendors who offer family friendly novelties and quality crafts and goods to feature on the 16 acres of tree-shaded fairgrounds…and yes, Patriotic themed vendors are encouraged to sign up and show off your red, white, and blue,” added McVey.
The 4-H Fair is a county tradition that offers family entertainment, live music, a nightly Chicken BBQ, and much more. It is a great opportunity for new vendors to experience a quality county fair with affordable commercial vendor fees that include basic electricity and start as low as $130. Plus, all vendors who pay by April 1, 2023, will receive a 10 percent discount.
