Who We Are

This event is a fundraiser for the 4-H Youth Development Program. Our goal is to empower youth with life skills that will enable them to become caring, competent and capable citizens to build strong foundations for the future.

All funds raised through the Small Business Showcase will be used to implement educational opportunities which will prepare Madison County 4-H’ers “To Make The Best Better” (4-H motto).

Concurrent Events

Madison County 4-H will be hosting a family-friendly fall Escape Room and selling concessions on-site throughout the day. Last year’s 4-H Escape Room generated a sold-out weekend of fun! We are excited for you to join us for an even bigger fall event this year, bringing our community together to support 4-H Positive Youth Development!
