While the fair might be cancelled this year, Frederick County 4-H and FFA members have been raising their livestock for many months. Consider filling your freezer with fresh local meats and support local youth. The sale begins on Wednesday, Sept. 23rd and goes until Thursday, Sept. 24th.at 6:00PM. Animals will all be sold by the head this year, not per pound like years past. The sale will include beef, swine, sheep, goat, rabbit and turkey projects. When the sale goes live you can search by species or by last name. You will be supporting a local 4-H'er who has worked relentlessly this year. They use these funds towards feed, vet bills and to purchase an animal for next year.
- Register as a buyer for the 4-H & FFA Online Livestock Show (which does not obligate you to buy but you can't bid, buy or donate without registering: https://tgffg.fairwire.com/buyerlogon.aspx
- BUY OR DONATE: The sale will open for bids (and donations) at 9:00am on Wednesday, September 23 and will run similarly to a silent auction with all bids being locked in at 6:00pm on Thursday September 24.
- Watch! The Frederick Fair Board made the tough decision to cancel the traditional Fair (as our community has come to know it, with carnival, concerts, vendors and... PEOPLE). Because of the awesome sponsors and a host of volunteer parents and previous members, the Frederick County Youth livestock exhibitors have been invited to show their animals prior to sale AT the Fairgrounds. Thanks to Visit Frederick, DARCARS Toyota of Frederick, and PVI Office Furniture, who financed 9 days of filming, producing, livestreaming, downloading, archiving and this week adding social media elements to the broadcast, so everyone can be at the shows virtually with the best seat in the house!!!!
