Open Class – Youth Division

The Kenosha County Fair has an open class youth division for persons 5 – 12 years of age who are not enrolled in an organized program (i.e. 4-H). Children can enter categories such as photography, baking, cultural arts, clothing, knitting/crocheting and Home Furnishings.   This is an excellent chance to compete against kids your own age!

This is a great way for children to become involved and exhibit at the Kenosha County Fair! In addition the Kenosha County Fair offers classes specifically for special needs children. See page 40 of the fair book.
