This program will on Thursday, July 9th at 6:30 p.m. at the Courthouse. The speaker is to be determined at this time. The event is free and refreshments will be served. We are aiming to record these talks and making them available online on our YouTube page.

In the event we are unable to host this in person, we will host it via Zoom and the link will be provided in the reminder email a few days before the event.

Since 1945, the Youth Fair has celebrated all that is agriculture here in Berrien County and with nearly half of all available land currently farmed, that's a lot of celebrating! While COVID-19 has put a damper on many thing, the pride behind the Youth Fair will always shine!

The BCHA will host this event inside and require visitors to follow social distancing rules while on site.
About our Speaker

For over 70 years, the Berrien County Youth Fair has focused on the youth of Berrien County by providing a showcase for the projects they have completed during the past 12 months. “Builders of Good Citizenship” has been the motto of the fair since it’s beginning in 1945. The original Board of Directors wanted to provide a family event where youth could learn new skills and exhibit those skills annually. The Fair services thousands of visitors annually, who enjoy all that the fair has to offer.
