Every year, our exhibitors with market animals or animals in lactation (during exhibition) are required by the Ohio Department of Agriculture to fill out a Drug Use Notification Form (DUNF). Like last year, DUNF’s will be online only. DUNF’s must be filled out PRIOR to your animal stepping foot on the grounds! As a reminder, your animal must be drug-free before it steps onto the fairgrounds for exhibition. Please complete a DUNF for each animal (date and link to be announced).
Tuscarawas County Junior Fair Entries are due by 11:59 p.m. CT August 7, 2023. All entries must be made through the website at https://tuscjrfair.fairentry.com/. The link in the 2023 Fair Book is incorrect. Recommended browsers: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari. Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge likely will not work.
Log in using your 4-H Online log-in username and password. The FairEntry system is linked to 4-H Online; ALL YOUTH ALREADY HAVE FAIR ENTRY PROFILES. Do NOT create a "new" exhibitor! More information can be found in the July 8 4-H Newsletter that was emailed to all families.
2023 Fair Booth Request Form - Form is to be completed if a booth is needed or not. No forms accepted at Interview Judging. Booths are assigned based on club size/project enrollment; space requested is not guaranteed. Priority is given to clubs returning form by date due.
Any booth assignment questions are to be directed to Chris Kendle.
Each year, the Tuscarawas County 4-H Program seeks sponsors for 4-H member fair trophies, awards, and plaques. Your support of our youth would be greatly appreciated! Requests can be submitted online at https://go.osu.edu/tuscjrfairawardsponsorship by July 3, 2023. After that date, awards will be open and sponsorships filled on a first-come, first-sponsored basis.
NEW for 2023: We will be using banners for classes, divisions, and championships.
Please note: We will make every attempt to honor your requests, but cannot guarantee that your selections will be fulfilled.
The 2023 Potential New Buyers Pass Request Form is now available. If an individual/company purchased at the 2022 Junior Fair Sale, a 2023 sale packet which includes passes, will be mailed to them a few weeks before fair. Do not complete this form for last year's buyers. This completed request form is due no later than 4:00 p.m. on August 7, 2023. Forms can be copied as needed. Call-in requests will not be taken as we need the completed form (with signature of the potential buyer). This form is used for all sales - large, small, and dairy.
Again, this is due no later than 4:00 p.m. on August 7, 2023. Due to the mailing process, forms will not be accepted after this date.

(During the Tuscarawas County Fair)
The Animal and Me Show is where special needs individuals (ages 8-50) get a chance to shine! This show provides everyone the opportunity to experience a 4-H animal project, allowing special needs individuals the opportunity to achieve success in the show ring. 4-H members utilize animal projects to mentor individuals.
Participants will receive a ribbon and recognition for something they did well.
Please note that participation has been limited to 30 participants.
Click here for the Flyer and Mentor and Participant Registration Form. Forms are due to the Tuscarawas County office of OSU Extension no later than 4 PM on September 10, 2023 (deadline has been extended).
The Clover Café is the only fundraiser the Tuscarawas County 4-H Committee holds each year which allows the committee to help fund enrollment materials, Interview Judging, 4-H Fun Day, camps, and other activities.
Volunteers are always needed at the café during the Tuscarawas County Fair! Sign up to work a shift! All ages (Cloverbud age and older) can help!

Click here for the 2023 Beverage Schedule - Our beverage costs are reduced by asking each club to bring the assigned number of 12-packs. The amount assigned per club is based on the total number of members in your club. Clubs can decide how to fulfill the request. Remeber, the café is counting on your donation! Beverages will be collected at the Clover Café during wristband distribution.
