North Park 4-H & FFA Jackpot

June 17th, 2018

The Jackpot Show is a great opportunity for all 4-H & FFA youth to participate and for new members to get an idea of what it’s like in the show ring.  The show provides great practice for the county fair too!  The North Park Jackpot has become a Father’s Day tradition for many 4-H and FFA families in our area and continues to draw an enthusiastic crowd each year.

Northwestern Colorado EXPO

June 11th-15th, 2018 Jackson County

As many of you already know, Expo is special in many ways.  Expo began in 1969 and was established to be a learning experience for 4-H livestock and horse project members and not a livestock/horse show or county fair.  Even though there are showmanship, obedience, prospect and riding classes at Expo, the real purpose is to teach and give “hands on” experience to 4-H members on how to have a successful livestock project at their county fair.

In the continuing tradition of Expo, 4-H members will spend the first day in workshops with resource specialists from the livestock, rabbit, poultry, horse and dog industry.  The second day is full of excitement in which youth exercise their skills acquired the previous day.
