LP County fair may go on, but without 4-H

4-H livestock judging and exhibits are always one of the highlights of the La Porte County Fair, but not this year. While no decision has been made on whether to hold the fair this year, all 4-H judging and exhibits will be conducted virtually.

La PORTE — Even if the La Porte County Fair is conducted this summer – a decision still being evaluated – it will not include the usual 4-H competitions.

The Purdue University Extension – La Porte County announced Friday that in place of judging and showing at the fair, it will conduct a “hybrid 4-H experience” that will include a July virtual exhibition and fall Showcase of Excellence for non-market animals and static projects.
