Cape May Court House – Come be a part of the 4-H Fair! After breaking attendance records for the past two years, the Cape May County 4-H Fair will entertain Cape May County residents and visitors on July 18, 19, and 20, 2024. You can experience firsthand this Cape May County tradition by being a vendor at the fair.
The Cape May County 4-H Foundation is busy planning for the 2024 4-H Fair scheduled for July 18, 19 and 20. This year the theme comes from author Dr. Seuss, “Oh the Places We Will Go With 4-H!” Lisa McVey, 4-H Fair Chair, said, “The 4-H Fair Committee is looking forward to this year’s fair and highlighting our 4-H kids’ projects and accomplishments. As Dr. Seuss says, ‘The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. Wherever you fly, you’ll be best of the best.’ And that is what 4-H is about, providing the opportunities to make the best better.”
The 4-H spirit will be on display at the fair with 4-H events and exhibits plus expect to see all the traditional fair activities and a variety of vendors that make the 4-H Fair the place to be in July.
We welcome past vendors to return and encourage new vendors to join us in making the 2024 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,” 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, 2024, will receive a 10 percent discount.
The public hours for the 2024 Cape May County 4-H Fair are 3 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 20. The 4-H fairgrounds are located at 355 Court House – S.
