4-H Cafe & Concessions

Each 4-H youth is asked to help out in a very important way to help
4-H at the concession booth during fair.  The money earned from the
concessions is a large part of helping youth and volunteers
attend events, fund projects and much more! 

Your couple of hours is so helpful to making 4-H successful. 
Please check out the sign up in the link below. 
We need help in areas from baking pies and goodies to serving food at the fair.

Sign up here!


Gallatin County 4-H invites you to submit a proposal for a pop-up educational 4-H activity.  This would take place during any of the days at the Big Sky Country State Fair Wednesday, July 17 through Sunday, July 21.  Each leader/club/project has something they could share to the attendees at the fair and we hope that you would like to share that!  The goal of this would be to provide an activity/game/craft that youth could participate in, leave with information about 4-H, and allow 4-H youth to be more involved in sharing their project during fair.

Form to fill out, return by June 27
