June 20th, 2021

DUE TO COVID-19 WE ARE UNABLE TO HOST OUR JACKPOT THIS YEAR!! WE GREATLY APPRECIATE EVERYONE WHO HAS ATTENDED IN THE PAST AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING EVERYONE NEXT YEAR!!!

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 8th-11th,  2020, Moffat County

EXPO HAS BEEN CANCELLED THIS YEAR DUE TO COVID-19!!

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.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
