Due to COVID-19 precautions, the 4-H Fair and Carnival and Bluegrass Barn Series events are on hold. Thanks to all donors who help us to feed the animals as Frying Pan Farm Park never truly closes!

Fairfax County 4-H Fair and Carnival

Children with snacks.The 71st Annual Fairfax County 4-H Fair and Carnival was held at Frying Pan Farm Park from August 1 to 4, 2019.

The Fair and Carnival is full of multi-generational family fun with carnival rides, animal demos, farm animal competitions, baked goods and produce competitions, and pie eating and watermelon seed spitting contests. Four days are filled with fresh air, farm fun and good times for you, your friends, family and neighbors. You'll see livestock and 4-H exhibits, enjoy delicious fair food, and you can enter your creation in the fair and try your hand at milking a cow or goat. Don’t miss the carnival rides, games and live entertainment.

Sponsorship opportunities will be available through the Fairfax County Park Foundation. Levels and benefits will be listed in the 4-H Fair Sponsorship Prospectus! This popular event attracts that largest number of visitors out of the many unique Fairfax County Park Authority programs.

Thank you to our 2019 4-H Fair & Carnival Sponsors!
