We are pleased to announce that 4-H Day at The Big E will be Saturday, September 14. On this day 4-H’ers from the six New England States are eligible to participate in our Daily Parade.

4-H At The Big E

4-H at The Big E is an exciting opportunity for over 2,500 youth ranging from 12-18 years of age. Throughout the year 4-H Youth have worked on projects to bring to the Fair. The Big E offers the opportunity to highlight their work to all of New England. 4-H members who participate in programs with Dairy Cattle, Beef Cattle, Dairy Goats, Sheep, Dogs, and Horses remain on the grounds for 3 to 4 days of fun packed shows and contests. There are also many opportunities for 4-H Groups to present their projects in the New England Center and the Farm-A-Rama Stage.

All 4-H activity participants are guests of The Big E.
