For over 50 years, University of Extension/4-H, Platte County and Platte County Agricultural Mechanical and Stock Association (PCAMSA) strive to engage youth. 4-H is a youth development program that engages youth ages 5-18 in leadership, citizenship and life skills. Platte County citizens and visitors are invited to participate in 4-H exhibits, displays and community enrichment activities each evening of the Fair 4-9pm in the Meyer Mack building and the Platte County Livestock Show.
Hundreds of great items and exhibits made by 4-Hers through the year will be on display at the fair in the air conditioned exhibit building. Hands on educational youth activities are scheduled each evening of the fair from 5-7pm. For detail information connect to Platte County Missouri 4-H Facebook Page.
