Elkhart 4H Fair Date: July 21 – 29, 2023

The Elkhart 4H Fair is an annual event held in Elkhart County, Indiana in the city of Goshen. This fair is a showcase for the hard work and dedication of the young people involved in the 4H program and local farming community,

The Elkhart 4H program, which stands for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health, is a time for the youth of the community to come together and display the projects that they have been working on throughout the year. These projects range from animal science to home economics and cover a wide range of interests and talents.

The Elkhart 4H Fair is held in July and runs for several days with many rides, concerts, events, and food stands open for enjoyment. Learn more below about the events to look forward to at the 2023 Elkhart County Fair.

One of the most popular attractions at the fair is the animal science exhibit. This exhibit features a wide range of animals, including cows, pigs, goats, chickens, and rabbits. The youth who have raised and trained these animals spend months preparing for the fair, and their hard work is on display for all to see.

The carnival theme park is another big attraction at the 4H Fair. You’ll find many different rides for all ages to enjoy.

Tickets can be purchased at one of several ticket booths throughout the park. There are also designated wristband days which offer all access to all rides for the entire day instead of buying individual tickets. Make sure to check out the carnival games in addition to the rides. Prizes can be won, for example, giant stuffed animals, basketballs and sports jerseys, and more!

If you love concerts, check out the concert series to see who will be performing different days of the fair week. Carly Pearce, Tyler Hubbard and Skillet have been named so far for the 2023 Elkhart County Fair concerts.

The grand stands also host other exciting events to go and see. These include the demolition derby, truck & tractor pull, beauty pageant, and rodeo. Some grand stand events will be free while others will require an entrance fee.
