CHIPLEY — The annual Washington County Youth Fair comes back to town this weekend at the county Agricultural Center in Chipley.
Sponsored by the Farm Bureau, the annual event kicks off Friday evening with the traditional Spaghetti Supper to support Washington County Agricultural Youth Activities. The dinner will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on March 1 at the Washington County Agricultural Center.
This supper is held each year in conjunction with the Washington County Youth Fair. Proceeds will be used to support “Ag in the Classroom,” youth fair activities, farm tours and many other agricultural youth events.
Tickets may be purchased before the supper from any WCFB board member or at the Farm Bureau office in Chipley. Prior purchase is not required, and tickets will be sold at the door. Tickets are $6 and $3 for children. Hot biscuits, sausage, coffee, orange juice and soft drinks will be available Saturday morning.
The majority of the Youth Fair activities will be held on Saturday. With so many talented youth in our county, the Washington County Youth Fair is a place for them to enter projects to be judged and receive awards.
Each February, the Washington County Youth Fair is held to recognize those talents and skills of our youth.
On Friday, the Youth Fair swine show will be held at 6 p.m.
On Saturday, March 2, events begin with the beef show at 9 a.m. and the steer and swine auction at 6 p.m.
The Washington County Youth Fair is open to all youth in Washington County and Washington County 4-H members and FFA members in Washington and Holmes counties with livestock projects.
