August 10-15

The first ever Kent County Youth 4H Fair was held in Lowell, Michigan, in 1935. It was a two-day fair that replaced the West Michigan Fair, five years after it had shut down. And now, 80 years later, the Kent County Youth Fair is still going strong—and it has a lot more than just live and still exhibits.

Each year, the Kent County Youth Fair provides an exciting opportunity to over 1000 exhibitors and more than 40,000 patrons. This year’s fair takes place August 10-15.

Racing pigs are back at the Kent County Youth Fair this year.

Besides the exhibits, there is a carnival, daily themes, free entertainment, and special attractions such as the Little Britches Rodeo, racing pigs, tractor games, pulls, children’s barnyard, dodgeball, princess tea, goat milking contest, clown judging, bingo and much more to see and do. Check out the full schedule here.

Admission is free, daily parking passes are $6, or $18 for the week. Parking fees are the fair’s main source of revenue, since they don’t charge a gate fee.
