Cape May Court House – Save the date for the annual Cape May County 4‑H Fair, one of New Jersey's oldest fairs, on July 16, 17 and 18, 2020. The year 2020 marks the 51th anniversary that the 4‑H Fair takes place on the shady 4‑H fairgrounds located at 355 Court House – South Dennis Road in Cape May Court House.

The 4‑H Fair has free admission each day for visitors to enjoy all the activities, exhibits and entertainment. Public hours for this family friendly event are noon to 9 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday.

Some returning events include a pet show – open to all, livestock and horse shows, a market animal auction, bouncy houses, and a maker space that combines elements of innovation, do-it-yourself skills, crafts, and technology. Also, returning this year, the Children’s Discovery Farm with a lineup of activities designed for our youngest fair visitors, along with antique pedal tractors and regular Life on the Farm fun. “Tent Talks,” short, hands-on lectures that connect the general public to local experts in a variety of backyard agricultural topics, also returns to the fair.

Old fair favorites such as Sawdogs Chainsaw Artist Matt Hass, the Jersey Cape Cruisers Antique Car Show, 4‑H project exhibits, vendors with delicious foods and interesting items and live local entertainment are only some of the activities that round out a wonderful family experience.

The famous Chicken Bar-B-Que begins at 5 p.m. nightly with fresh flounder added on Friday night. Get your tickets beginning at 4 p.m. each evening before they are sold out, and enjoy your dinner in the shade while listening to live entertainment on the fairgrounds’ Carol and Ralph Porch 4‑H Main Stage.
