Save the Date! Cape May County 4-H Fair July 18, 19, & 20

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 18, 19 and 20. This year marks the 50th anniversary that the 4-H Fair has taken 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.
